# Ubuntu – Is “no new release” found after I’m told its available

New release 'oneiric' available.

Checking for a new ubuntu release
No new release found


why does it say there is an upgrade then says it does not find it?

I have been slowly upgrading from 9x to 11.04. I had some issues along the way but nothing google could not help me with. Now this has me stuck.

I have tried

sudo apt-get update


this worked so it was not the issue I had before where my keys were invalid.

sudo apt-get upgrade


after that did nothing.

sudo do-release-upgrade returned with "no upgrade found"

do-release-upgrade -d. did the trick. I should have tried it since I did come across the -d tag in researching this. I had thought since the terminal itself knew there was an update available, it should find it. Thank you all for helping.

should be prefixed with sudo

sudo do-release-upgrade


and you may want to run the following command first

sudo apt-get update


although if you have been upgrading from 9.xx then you probably know that anyway,

so I apologise for stating the obvious if that is the case. :o)
