falconeersudo: do-release-upgrade: command not found20:20
falconeer^ its a desktop20:20

SIR_Tacoshould still work... maybe the command has changed since 8.04... just a second20:21
falconeerthank you20:21
SIR_Tacofalconeer: what does the last line of your /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades file say? should be "Prompt=......"20:24
falconeerthre is not update-manager directory20:25
SIR_Tacofalconeer: ok... maybe "sudo apt-get install update-manager-core" and then try the "sudo do-system-upgrade" again20:26
falconeerErr http://archive.ubuntu.com intrepid-updates/main update-manager-core 1:0.93.3420:26
falconeer  404 Not Found [IP: 80]20:26
falconeerFailed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/u/update-manager/update-manager-core_0.93.34_i386.deb  404 Not Found [IP: 80]20:26
falconeerE: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?20:26
SIR_Tacohave you done an "sudo apt-get update" lately?20:27
falconeerthats what happens when i do it20:28
SIR_TacoI guess that's because those sources no longer exist....20:30
falconeerso what do i do now?20:32
SIR_Tacowell... if you go here... edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and replace it with the one found here http://www.mindtrickz.org/blog/default-sources-list-file-in-ubuntu-11-04/  .... it *should* work... might want to back up important things though, for my piece of mind :)20:32
falconeeryup that worked20:34
SIR_Tacothat should put you at 11.0420:35
falconeerthank you20:36
falconeerthanks for your help have a nice day!20:36
falconeerim back20:38
falconeeri got another problem20:38
SIR_Tacothinking you might have to make a pit-stop at 10.04 before 11.04... might be too much of a change lol20:41
falconeerhow would i do that?20:41
SIR_Tacotry using this to get a 10.04 sources.list http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/... do your update and upgrade .... then you should be able to use the "sudo do-release-upgrade" (with any luck)20:42
falconeer                                 ok20:42
