      It takes a few days for the updates to propogate through the servers, so you should be able to update it through the Updater by next week.

        I think I once read somewhere that if you're using 12.04 the first update you'll get is 14.04.1.

          i really dont think so...

          To those who want the update now, you can go into software & updates and change the server from your country to the main server, that should work.
          If you can wait, it should take about 2 days or so i think.

            I installed 12.04 in a VM yesterday just to see how well the update works (with nothing else installed, though) but changing the server and checking for updates doesn't do anything.

              Relased with serious opened bug

              It was released, yet this bug was not fixed in time: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...t/+bug/1295439
              Meaning we can't import saved ovpn files from the UI... Sad...

                then perhaps is not server releated, they can have somekind of control to only allow a certain amount of people upgrade per day.
                Some companies do this in case something goes wrong they can abort and dont affect everyone.

                  You can always do it manually by using sed, update, and dist-upgrade.

                  Code:
                  sudo sed 's/precise/trusty/g' -i /etc/apt/sources.list
                  sudo sed 's/precise/trusty/g' -i /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
                  sudo apt-get update
                  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

                    The following worked for me a few hours ago:

                    Code:
                    sudo do-release-upgrade -d
                    Note that I was upgrading from 13.10, I can't vouch for this method for older versions.

                      Bad idea to use sed in case there is more to the upgrade than just package updates. Upgrade tools can handle "weird" changes that may be beyond a simple "update this package or remove this one."

                          Basically, nothing much... A few upstream packages changes, notably kernel updates. There's more if you are coming from 12.04 but 13.10 users will barely notice any differences.
