Best Answer

The problem is you are in a LTS version and 10.10 is a normal version.

Here are the steps:

Be sure that you apply all updates to your current version of Ubuntu before you upgrade:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Now perform this procedure:

  1. Install update-manager-core if it is not already installed:

    sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

  2. Edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set Prompt=normal.

  3. Launch the upgrade tool:

    sudo do-release-upgrade

  4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
