Upgrading from Ubuntu 10.4 to 10.10

If you are wondering why the Ubuntu 10.04 Update Manager does not show the button to upgrade to 10.10 release, then do the following.

Open the /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades file and set Prompt=normal (you will need super user privileges – sudo). By default, this is set to lts, which will only prompt when a LTS upgrade is available.

Once you have done that, go back to the Update Manager, and click Check button. Now the Upgrade to 10.10 button will appear !
