Repository Error During 18.04 Upgrade

Avatar aholubec 4 months, 1 week ago

I am trying to upgrade my linode from Ubuntu 17.10 to 18.04, I have followed all of the instructions in the how to upgrade document and when I run the do-release-upgrade it errors looking for a repository and stops the upgrade.

The error I am getting is E:The repository ' bionic Release' does not have a Release file.

I would appreciate any help with trouble-shooting this error.

Hey there,

It appears that you have added the wine repository to your Linode, and that is causing the update to fail. I would suggest running the following.

sudo apt-update;sudo apt upgrade
sudo do-release-upgrade

If it is still erroring out, you may either have to wait for to update the software to allow 18.04, or you can try removing the repository. This may break your software that depends on that repository, so be careful when attempting to remove it!

Thank you for the answer, looks like they are planning on supporting 18.04 eventually so I will wait to upgrade until that happens.

I appreciate the quick response.
