Ubuntu 10.10 Offline Upgrade (For PCs With Slow Internet)

Ubuntu 10.10: What's New (In A Nutshell)?


What's Good?
-Fast boot up times
-Pulse audio improvement
-Oneconf
-Unity UI, gui (for Ubuntu Netbook Edition only)

What's Not?
-Gnome 3 not here yet; will be in Ubuntu 11.04
-Eye candy wise, barely any difference, still the same old, great OS we know. ;)

Next release of Ubuntu is scheduled for November 4th, 2010 - Ubuntu 11.04 Alpha 1 (Natty Narwhal).

2010 Sep 27, Update: The latest Ubuntu 10.10 Beta did not pop up any low disk space warning for my offline upgrade. Thinking that it's safe, I went ahead but ran into many errors. However, between following the hints on Ubuntu's setup error messages and me checking the Synaptic Package Manager, I managed to find out what was going on. Ubuntu detected and automatically placed all the files that did not install correctly onto the Synaptic Package Manager for me to reget. ;) Not that I haven't observed this before; just thought I'll describe this in detail this time round. ;)

2010 Jul 15, Update: I managed to upgrade my Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat using the same old instructions on this guide. I am not recommending 10.10 beta for the time being; I upgraded it on a spare PC and don't see much of a difference. Can't see any new UI features. Better to stick to current stable version. ;)

2010 Jul, Update: Will also work for upgrade to 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat), currently at Alpha; as commented by a reader below.

2010 Apr, Update: Article updated with Ubuntu 10.04 contents; and will work for Ubuntu upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 (Beta) "Lucid Lynx" and other prior versions. :)


Ubuntu Offline Upgrade 10.04 to 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat)

Basically, an offline upgrade means doing an Ubuntu CD upgrade, rather than direct from within Ubuntu itself using the Update Manager. You can also use this offline upgrade method to upgrade your WUBI (Ubuntu in Windows) installation, and Ubuntu Alpha, Beta, or Release Candidate (RC) versions.

This article shows you how to do an offline cdrom update of your Ubuntu from version 10.04 ("Lucid Lynx") to 10.10 (aka "Maverick Meerkat") and is meant for people whose PC to-be-upgraded has a SLOW internet connection. Ubuntu ver 10.10 was released on the 10th of October, 2010. For those of you who are not aware of this, the 10 in 10.04 refers to year 2010 and the 04 - month 04. Hence, 10.10 equals Year 2010 Month 10.

Preparation:

  • Make sure that your current Ubuntu distribution is up-to-date prior to doing the upgrading (-you must have all the latest available updates for your version) as you will get messages prompting you to connect to the internet for updating if it is not up-to-date.

Note: This means that if the PC to be upgraded has NO internet connection, this is not the solution for you. Either start afresh with a new Ubuntu or Ubuntu WUBI (Ubuntu Windows install) or search Google for "Ubuntu no internet upgrade".

  • Have at least 800MB space available in your Ubuntu file system
  • Don't be lazy! Do some reading on the latest release notes or at least skim through them. ;)
  • Please note that you CANNOT jump versions when doing an upgrade. As long as your version is 8.04 and above, you should be able to follow this guide to upgrade to the latest and greatest version of Ubuntu. Just make sure that you upgrade incrementally this way: 8.04 to 8.10, 8.10 to 9.04, 9.04 to 9.10, 9.10 to 10.04, 10.04 to 10.10, 10.10 to 11.04 Natty Narwhal (when available). Or put in another way: Upgrade Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04) to Intrepid Ibex to Jaunty Jackalope to Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx to Maverick Meerkat to Natty Narwhal . No jumps! If you're too far behind, it's better to just get the latest CD and install from scratch. Why is that? As you can see from the simple upgrade path above, assuming that 1 CD is 700 MB, you will have to download at least 2800 MB of files to upgrade this way!

Using a previous incarnation of Ubuntu some time back, my laptop was still running 8.10, what I did was to upgrade to 9.04 from within 8.10 in anticipation of upgrading to 9.10.
But, having upgraded to 9.04, I found the downloading time for the live upgrade was too long - that's when I chose to do an offline upgrade for 9.10 - and hence writing this hub to document my experience.

Get On With It:

1. Get the ALTERNATE installation CD here:

http://releases.ubuntu.com/maverick/ (Upgrade to 10.10) OR

http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ (Upgrade to 10.04) OR

http://releases.ubuntu.com/karmic/ (Upgrade to 9.10)

DO NOT get the Desktop version. What you are looking for is an ISO file with "ALTERNATE" in its name - most likely - "ubuntu-10.10-alternate-i386.iso".
If possible, and ONLY IF you know how to, please reduce stress on Ubuntu's servers by downloading the torrent file which is at the bottom of the page.

2. Burn the CD

OR If you hate CDs, like me ... ;)

Just mount the iso file.
Go to a terminal (ie command prompt) and type:

sudo mount -o loop ~/Desktop/ubuntu-10.10-alternate-i386.iso /cdrom

Example: My iso file was saved to E: drive in Windows and I had to "go up" using Ubuntu's windows explorer equivalent to find out the path.
The command I used was this: "sudo mount -o loop /media/disk/Ubuntu/ubuntu-10.10-alternate-i386.iso /cdrom".

Note: The above refers to an Ubuntu upgrade without a CD or CDROM, where you make use of the downloaded Alternate CD image to do an ISO Ubuntu upgrade, direct from a hard drive.

Tip: If you run into low space error, bring up a terminal and run the following commands to clean junk files fr prev upgrade or updates:

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get remove

3. You will see a pop-up window that says: "A distribution volume with software packages has been detected"
Click as per instructions on the screen. Updating will still take some time -less than 1 hr for me - but still less time than what it says on the window that does the updating.

If you cannot find any upgrade dialog, try holding ALT and press F2, then type this on the Run window:

gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"

OR
kdesudo "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade" (in Kubuntu only)

TIP: When I started this article (using Ubuntu 9.04), cdrom and cdrom0 pointed to the same device, also the cdrom location was in "/media/cdrom" instead of in "/cdrom" now. Keep this in mind if you find that this is not working for you one day; check that your cdrom is actually located at "/cdrom" in Nautilus. If not, modify the cdrom path accordingly.

4. Done! And enjoy your new Ubuntu. :)
It's good to have it as a FREE maintenance OS, living side-by-side on the same partition with Windows. I have it just in case Windows decided to die on me but find myself using it more and more. ;)

Post-Upgrade


In the previous 2 versions, it is not uncommon to find that after upgrading, you run into no audio or sound problems, so immediately after updating, check to see whether you have sound, and whether some problematic drivers still works.

IF you run into upgrade errors, DO NOT panic! Just follow any instructions that may appear on your screen. Most likely, Ubuntu will be know if any package did not install correctly and have a Warning icon on the taskbar for you to click on. If you are impatient, go to the Synaptic Package Manager, under Preferences. You should be able to find these packages under "Broken Install" or something similiar sounding.

PLEASE share with us how your latest Ubuntu upgrade experience turned out, like:
-Is it more stable than prior versions?
-Liked the faster boot-up speed?
-Still getting driver issues?
-Thinks it's getting worse?
-Missed the old brown color?

Suppose there is a better official solution but I, in 9.04 and previous versions, do it this way for

Updating a second system one on the same system:

After mounting with mount /mnt/A_Ubuntu in the not yet updated system

(with /mnt/A_Ubuntu in /etc/fstab pointing to the already updated system)

Copy instead of reload

cp -p /mnt/A_Ubuntu/var/lib/apt/lists/* /var/lib/apt/lists/

and linking to directory in other linux

cd /var/cache/apt/

mv archives/ archives_tmp

ln -sd /mnt/A_Ubuntu/var/cache/apt/archives/ archives

/usr/sbin/synaptic & # mark and apply

rm archives

mv archives_tmp/ archives

Suppose the link could stay also if the same method always repeated.


HomeUser 6 years ago

I am under the impression there is this time a problem with the alternate disk making off line upgrade impossible.

Whatever I reply on the question if I want to upgrade the packages before installing, the same volume in downloads is announced and the upgrade fails without internet connection.

tariq 6 years ago

Hello,

I have tried to upgrade from the CD and by mounting the .ISO. However, all have been unsuccessfull.

I have downloaded the 32 bit version of 9.10.

I have tried to follow the instructions from this website http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading

First I tried to mount the ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso using the following:

sudo mount -o loop ~/Desktop/ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso /media/cdrom0

Which mounted it. But I never got the dialog box that says 'run upgrade'

I then did 'Alt F2' and typed the following:

gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"

Still nothing happened.

I can browse the files from the mounted *.iso and on the burnt CD. However, the dialog doesn't appear.

I can boot from the CD if I restart my computer. However, I just want to do a upgrade and not clean install.

I can't do an upgrade from the update-manager as my Internet is too slow and unreliable.

Many thanks for any advice

Hi tariq,

You got the wrong CD version! You need to get the ALTERNATE version as mentioned in the article, specifically - http://releases.ubuntu.com/karmic/ubuntu-9.10-alte...

Eveything should work fine; just do the download again. LOL

Thanks for bringing my attention to this. Just noticed that my link for 9.10 has been messed up since I updated the article for 10.04. :)

i downloaded alternate install iso. i used gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade" after which i got the installation menu. But it still uses internet to download new packages. How do i do it without the internet coz the speed is very slow


WadEmber 6 years ago

I've got a solution to everybody who experiences that nothing is happening after running command 'gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"'.

The problem is that the article has an error.

We mounted the ISO file to /media/cdrom0 however the gksu command tries to start the cdromupgrade script from /cdrom.

The correct solution after ALT+F2:

gksu "sh /media/cdrom0/cdromupgrade"

or even simpler:

gksu /media/cdrom0/cdromupgrade

Cheers!

Dense 6 years ago from somewhere in a concrete jungle, hugging a green plastic tree, and wondering what happened Author

Hi guys, I just checked my 10.04 file system and noticed that my cdrom has been relocated to /cdrom instead of /media/cdrom. I don't know if it's caused by any program I installed but if it's moved in 10.04 stable release, you will need to use this path instead:

"sudo mount -o loop /media/disk/Ubuntu/ubuntu-10.04-alternate-i386.iso /cdrom"

Just open up Nautilus (file explorer) and verify that cdrom is under /cdrom (File System folder).

Please comment if this helped solve your problem.


blahhhh 6 years ago

Im having the same problem as rain and abhi :(. It's really strange because I downloaded the torrent at +10Mb/s, that's right +10MB/s. However, i get to the part where it says "Getting new packages" and it goes extremely slow at 10Kb/s and it says "about 1 day remaining" which is ridiculous. I tried upgrading by using the regular update manager but it's still slow. In fact, upgrading any other program from 9.10 goes really slow.

I thought that perhaps it was that the repositories were having huge bandwidth loads from so many people upgrading their systems to 10.04. But it's been over 2 weeks since the release and I'm still having the same download speeds for any kind of upgrade. Nonetheless, my schools bandwidth is overwhelming at 10Mb/s for anything else.

Is anybody else having this problem? And also, is there a 0% internet method of upgrading?


Dense profile image

Dense 6 years ago from somewhere in a concrete jungle, hugging a green plastic tree, and wondering what happened Author

@blahhhh:

I am not sure what your problem is but it sounds to me like a connection problem. Have you tried getting a friend to download it for you from a different location? Since you have already tried the torrent, you can also consider getting the regular .iso file from your school if you haven't done so.

There is a 0% method if you seach for it - search for 10.04 packages/repository DVD. Hope it helps!

The easiest way is probably to install a new version of Ubuntu 10.04 rather than the upgrade version.

@WadEmber

Hi, thank you for pointing out that I have both cdrom and cdrom0 in the guide. When I first started the article, they can be used interchangeably but since 10.04 (I think), this is no longer true.

I only realize this when I have to follow my own notes recently which explains why I am thanking you now. ;)

The article has been updated to reflect this.

@chartist: This solution is actually for PCs with SLOW internet. If without internet, try doing a Google search for: "Ubuntu upgrade without internet", which is a bit like what HomeUser commented above. It is probably easier to start anew with 10.10. After 10.10, hopefully, OneConf, the new single configuration settings, can help make the next transition easier. :)

Sergey Pisarchik 6 years ago

I was trying to update from 9.04 to 9.10.

I’ve downloaded alternate installation CD (approx 700 MB)

During Installation process I had some differences.

First, I was recommended to up_to_date my Ubuntu. So, I've agreed.

Second, in "Do you want to start the upgrade?" dialog I've received 4 paragraphs (not 3, like on picture). And the second one was telling that I'll have to download 1045 MB of new packages. My home traffic is limited... Is there any solution not to download 1GB of data?


Dense profile image

Dense 6 years ago from somewhere in a concrete jungle, hugging a green plastic tree, and wondering what happened Author

Hi Sergey! Are you talking about upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10 or 10.04 to 10.10?

If you're talking about 9.04 to 9.10, after that you will still need to upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04, and in a month's time 10.10, each of them at least 700MB.

Assuming that this is the case, I would prefer to start afresh from 10.10 beta. :/

It's better to use the newer versions of Ubuntu, like 10.04 as they're more stable and less likely to give you sound card problems, for example.


Ola 6 years ago

Dense profile image

Dense 6 years ago from somewhere in a concrete jungle, hugging a green plastic tree, and wondering what happened Author

10.10 is supposed to be faster, as Ubuntu has been tweaking the boot-up time since version 10.04. But it also depends on your hardware. Some people have already experienced the faster speed, but I am yet to notice any improvement since version 10.04. On the other hand, the latest beta causes my Ubuntu to be unable to shutdown in 2 of my installations. -_-

Beta is (not always) fun. ;D

Dense profile image

Dense 6 years ago from somewhere in a concrete jungle, hugging a green plastic tree, and wondering what happened Author

@Caveman: You will still need minimal internet connection as Ubuntu will prompt you to at least update your current version before downloading the cd. That's why the article is titled "... For PCs With SLOW Internet" as you will still need an internet connection. Please read my last few replies in comments, beginning with my reply to chartist. :)

Everything should remain the same: boot menu order, other programs you have installed, etc. :)

Some settings, you may need to reconfigure.

Check out the new Oneconf - for saving your settings; it's an early days version, btw.

I have been triple booting Windows XP, Windows 7 and Ubuntu for a while now. :)

The Ubuntu 10.10 offline upgrade went smoothly. Thank you. However, each time I run the Update Manager the following message appears:

Please insert the above CD/DVD into the drive '/cdrom/' to install software packages from it.

Which forces me to issue the command you explained in the article to mount the iso file. My question is: Is there away to avoid this?

Thank you very much.

Dense 5 years ago from somewhere in a concrete jungle, hugging a green plastic tree, and wondering what happened Author

I have this problem recently too. Don't know why there is no setting to make it stick, but my workaround is to copy the cdrom install path, and put it in a text file in Ubuntu's install folder (or anywhere you can easily open). That way, if it asks again, I'll just copy and paste. Or I'd just ignore it. It should be safe to do so. :)


Karim 5 years ago

Now, if I am making an offline upgrade, why is it downloading files from the internet??!

-First I mounted the iso file - without wasting a CD- but no dialog came up, so I did like you said

"if you cannot find any upgrade dialog, try holding ALT and press F2, then type this on the Run window:

gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"

then it asked me whether I want to download the new updates and I chose no, so it started the upgrade, but when it came to getting new packages, it started downloading "fetcing files" from the internet, and when I closed the internet connection it gave me an error.

-Then I just burned the file on a CD and the dialog did show up this time and I went through the same steps as before, when it came to "Getting new packages", it started fetching from the CD (I could hear the sound, and there was no download speed shown) - so far so good

when it reached "fetching file 890 of 1460, the noise stopped and it started downloading from the internet at a very low download speed:(

Right now it's still downloading! so what should I do?
