Ubuntu release upgrade

Ubuntu logo ubuntu.comAfter my previous problem trying to update my Ubuntu server running 10.04 I tried to do a release upgrade.

Before I was able to do this I had to change the sources.list again, this time I used the mirror schema as recommended here.

Old:

deb http://ap-southeast-1.ec2.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid main restricted
deb-src http://ap-southeast-1.ec2.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid main restricted

New:

deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid main restricted
deb-src mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid main restricted

The download of 430MB was pretty quick and took around 5 min to complete. Installation took a lot longer…
