I'm trying to upgrade an old ubuntu server from 8.10 (Intrepid) to 9.04 (Jaunty). But it fails.
root@server1:/# do-release-upgrade 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.
Does anyone have an idea why I get this error and how to fix it?
UPDATE: I think i might have tracked the problem down.
My /etc/update-manager/meta-release looks like this:
[METARELEASE] URI = http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release URI_LTS = http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts URI_UNSTABLE_POSTFIX = -development URI_PROPOSED_POSTFIX = -proposed
If i go to http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release it has this info for Jaunty:
Dist: jaunty Name: Jaunty Jackalope Version: 9.04 Date: Thu, 23 Apr 2009 12:00:00 UTC Supported: 0 Description: This is the 9.04 release Release-File: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/jaunty/Release ReleaseNotes: http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/EOLReleaseAnnouncement UpgradeTool: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/jaunty-proposed/main/dist-upgrader-all/0.111.8/jaunty.tar.gz UpgradeToolSignature: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/jaunty-proposed/main/dist-upgrader-all/0.111.8/jaunty.tar.gz.gpg
Those links starting with archive.ubuntu.com are broken since jaunty is EOL.
I guess i could fix this by copying this file, replacing "archive" with "old-releases", host the modified file somewhere and change the url in the meta-release file. Is this a good solution or will it make me run into worse problems?
