Upgrading from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04.01

  • Posted July 25, 2014

I’m trying to upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 and the first point release for 14.04 is out, but when I do do-release-upgrade it says no new release found. Any ideas why it’s not showing the new release?

Ok truth, the problem is with the HWE

Your current Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) is going out of support on 08/07/14. After this date security updates for critical parts (kernel and graphics stack) of your system will no longer be available.

I tried to do the do-release-upgrade, but it is still showing that “No New Release Found”. Any idea when it might be available?

That ‘-d’ means ‘development’ which usually means ‘unstable and unfinished.’ Don’t do that in a production environment.

Users of Ubuntu 12.04 will soon be offered an automatic upgrade to 14.04.1 via Update Manager. — Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS released

Try waiting a couple of days, it doesn’t look like 14.04.1 is available for LTS upgrades right now.
