Ubuntu MATE 18.10 Final release is out!


#21

Hi!
I can’t upgrade from 18.04 LTS to 18.10 :frowning:

Error-message in terminal after typed “sudo /usr/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/check-new-release -q”
…same with “do-release-upgrade”
Error:

Failed to connect to https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts. Check your Internet connection or proxy settings

I have MOTD.service disabled.

/etc/update-manager/meta-release:

default location for the meta-release file

[METARELEASE]
URI = https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release
URI_LTS = https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts
URI_UNSTABLE_POSTFIX = -development
URI_PROPOSED_POSTFIX = -proposed

/etc/update-manager/release-upgrades:
Prompt=lts

Must I change Prompt=normal?

My Internet is working. I can visit “https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts

Please help!

I changed in “/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/UpdateManager/Core/utils.py”

from:
proxy_support = ProxyHandler({“http”: proxy})

to:

proxy_support = ProxyHandler({“http”: proxy, “https”:proxy})

Rebooted my system, typed in “do-release-upgrade”

Error-message:
Failed to connect to https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts. Check your Internet connection or proxy settings
No new release found.

Some idea?

I did run into one odd issue soon after installation but was able to recreate it. This is what I did:

  1. I encrypted my filesystem as part of the installation
  2. Once I logged in, I did a “snap refresh”
  3. I also did an “apt autoremove”
  4. On the next reboot I was presented with a splash screen where it hung and then it went to a boot loader command prompt.

Everything was fine when I didn’t encrypt but I’m guessing if I didn’t do the autoremove I probably would have been ok. All that said, great job devs! Ubuntu Mate is, as far as I’m concerned, the best distro out there.
