SOLVED Sorted It was as simple as changing the prompt type from LTS to Normal in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades SOLVED Not sure if this is the correct forum. I just upgraded my server to 12.04 - had a little hiccup with the grub loader section which caused the update to hang and not finish cleanly. After a re-boot the server reports as 12.04.2 lts and all is working as it should. However when I try to start an upgrade to 12.10 it responds no update available. Anyone have an idea why this might be?
