Upgrading Ubuntu: 7.10 –> 8.04

Just like my revious time, when upradng from 6.06 to 7.10, the “Update Manager” did not recognize it automatically – so I need to do it myself.

I follow the instructions under: “Network upgrade for Kubuntu desktops (recommended)” – on the Ubuntu site.

Even though I have the “classic” Ubuntu – I mean the Gnome desktop – this does seem to start working:

1. Install update-manager-core if it is not already installed:

      			sudo aptitude install update-manager-core


Launch the upgrade tool:

      			sudo do-release-upgrade


Follow the on-screen instructions.
