Great article, it helped a lot. Thanks.
I went to Upgrade Manager, as per the above.
The phrase – “New distribution release ‘7.10’ is available. – Upgrade” is not on the Upgrade Manager screen, as per the screen shot.
Previously I have been here to check it out and it was. Has the upgrade process changed?
Is the upgrade process the same for 7.10 to 8.04
are there chances if data losses during the process.
Similar to Geoff Scales quoted above I do not get “New distribution release ‘7.10? is available. – Upgrade” on the Upgrade Manager screen. What should I do?
I can see the phrase “New distribution release 7.10 is available” but I can’t find the release notes? What should i do?
Ok, the Alt+F2 thing worked.
The command was awesome.
The upgrade button for 7.10 came up too.
But when I clicked on it, it said that it couldn’t show the update manager because of an overload thingamig.
You’re article is excellent but can you please help me with my problem.
Who ever knows the solution please e-mail me or reply to this comment.

Sorry in my 4th sentence I meant the release notes not upgrade manager. Ok. Just my little “train-of-thought” error over in my last comment. Guess I should have reread it before sending.
