So, today is July 21st and this page. gives me an option to download 16.04.1 LTS. However, attempting to upgrade gets me this message –
$ sudo do-release-upgrade Checking for a new Ubuntu release No new release found
What is wrong? Does it matter that I am running apt-get update behind
Note: Commenting out the files in apt.conf.d that used
apt-cacher-ng did not make a difference.
Edit: Explanation for possible duplicates: Why is "No new release found" when upgrading from a LTS to the next? deals with upgrade from 12.04LTS to 14.04LTS. My question is specific to 14.04 LTS to 16.04.1 LTS upgrade. Old answers, while good for archival purposes are less relevant in a fast changing package like ubuntu. Moreover none of the answers answer what is wrong. The link andrew.46 pointed out is mentioned in one of the comments. This Q & A is more helpful for people upgrading today than the work around mentioned in "Why is "No new release found" when upgrading from a LTS to the next?".
