Upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat from 10.04 Lucid Lynx

Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Alpha has been available for download a few days back and I have decided to upgrade from Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx 64bit to 10.10. I’m sure there are no notable changes in the first alpha, but it is great to have it installed as changes are seen easy and I can help in development by reporting bugs and trying to fix some issues on my own.

To upgrade, I had to launch Synaptic and navigate to Settings>Repositories>Updates>Release Upgrade>Show new distribution releases>Normal Releases and then close the dialog and then update the package list. Run

update-manager -d

from the run dialog (Alt+F2) and in that box it says “New Upgrade release ‘10.10’ is available”, click on Upgrade and there we go.

  • Hey bro, does gwibber work for you after upgrade? It doesn’t work after I upgraded to Maverick.

    ^I don’t use Gwibber myself… Haven’t tried it lately.

  • ^ Sorry nevermind. Today’s update fixed it. Thank you anyways.Good work with the blog. Keep it up.

    This is exactly what I needed, my Ubuntu was set for LTS upgrade only. Thanks.
