Default Meekrat reports itself as Natty

when composing another message I wanted to double check the version of
Ubuntu I had on my laptop. I did System-->Help and Support and it said:


Your are using Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal - released in April 2001
and supported unt October 2012.


cat /etc/issue returns Ubuntu 10.10
l as I expected.

Regards, Jim

Well, 2001 was very odd, sure it didn't say 2011?

Anyway, when I click [System → Help and Support] I get no information what
so ever about which version I am running.

Same for me.

”About Ubuntu”? As in [System → About Ubuntu]? The OP said [System → Help
and Support], didn't he?

Yes he did, but then, there's nothing like this at "Help and Suppor".

And I was wrong. I just checked and it was System-->About Ubuntu that I
clicked. Sorry for the error.

Yes, a typo on my part.

See my other reply. I misspoke. It was System-->About.
