I’m trying to upgrade my ubuntu to the latest LTS, and have tried editing my sources.list to the digital ocean mirrors:
deb http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu-old/ saucy main restricted universe multiverse deb http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu-old/ saucy-updates main restricted universe multiverse deb http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu-old/ saucy-security main restricted universe multiverse
do-release-upgrade still fails with a lot of errors (small snippet of many):
Err http://mirrors.digitalocean.com trusty/multiverse i386 Packages Err http://mirrors.digitalocean.com trusty/universe i386 Packages Err http://mirrors.digitalocean.com trusty/main Translation-en_US Err http://mirrors.digitalocean.com trusty/main Translation-en Err http://mirrors.digitalocean.com trusty/multiverse Translation-en_US
Then it finally fails saying
No candidate ver: libaudit0 No candidate ver: libcogl-pango0 No candidate ver: libcogl9 No candidate ver: libgjs0c No candidate ver: libgnome-desktop-3-4 No candidate ver: libmutter0 No candidate ver: libunity-core-6.0-5 No candidate ver: unity-common Updating repository information No valid mirror found While scanning your repository information no mirror entry for the upgrade was found. This can happen if you run an internal mirror or if the mirror information is out of date. Do you want to rewrite your 'sources.list' file anyway? If you choose 'Yes' here it will update all 'saucy' to 'trusty' entries. If you select 'No' the upgrade will cancel. Continue [yN]
Any tips on how to proceed? I imagine I somehow have an issue with my sources.list?
