8.10 to 9.04 (Intrepid to Jaunty)

Before you start

Please make sure you've read and understood the main EOLUpgrade page.

I would recommend using clonezilla for backing up your current installation. It is very easy to backup and restore your partitions with clonezilla. It takes less then 30 minutes to backup/restore a 20Gb root filesystem which has 4-5 Gb used space.

The upgrade

  • Please make sure you have the following sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list).
     ## EOL upgrade sources.list
     # Required
     deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid main restricted universe multiverse
     deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-updates main restricted universe multiverse
     deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-security main restricted universe multiverse
     # Optional
     #deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-backports main restricted universe multiverse
     #deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-proposed main restricted universe multiverse
    You can make use of -backports, -proposed repositories if you want.

    For more information about repositories see Repositories/Ubuntu.

  • Update the package list and upgrade all the installed packages
     sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade
  • Perform the release upgrade.
     sudo do-release-upgrade
    This step currently fails, saying:
     Checking for a new ubuntu release
     Failed Upgrade tool signature
     Failed Upgrade tool
     Done downloading            
     extracting 'jaunty.tar.gz'
     Failed to extract
     Extracting the upgrade failed. There may be a problem with the network or with the server.

    A workaround is described here: https://serverfault.com/questions/278078/error-upgrading-ubuntu-server-from-intrepid-to-jaunty

  • Check your new version

    Reboot your machine and you can now run lsb_release -a to check the new version of Ubuntu.
