No need to blame yourself for anything. The upgrade inststructions on:
Network upgrade for Ubuntu servers (recommended)
If you run an Ubuntu server, you should use the new server upgrade system.
1. enable the "dapper-updates" repository
2. install the new "update-manager-core" package - dependencies
include python-apt, python-gnupginterface and python2.4-apt.
3. run "do-release-upgrade -d" in a terminal window
4. follow the steps on the terminal window
You were following the directions.
That's why I mentioned in the bug report that this should now be
changed to "do-release-upgrade" without the '-d'.
What gave me the hint that the -d might be a problem was this:
Finally the update can be performed
The -p parameter is due to the fact that the LTS as defined at
http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts is still showing dapper as
the LTS, and should be able to be omitted in the future. with the -p,
the meta-release-lts.proposed file is used instead.
So I figured that the -d meant that meta-release-lts.development should
be used. Sure enough, that's what it is doing. See:
http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/ for the differences.
Anyway, glad it's working for you. Now you get to deal with the issues
_after_ the upgrades :-)
