Ask Ubuntu – 12.04 release day update

As many of you already know, Ubuntu 12.04 has just been released to the masses. Unsurprisingly, Ask Ubuntu has seen a large swirl of activity just before and after the release of 12.04, bringing in a large influx of users looking into getting their favourite OS into perfect shape. And, most of our awesome contributors are helping the excited users with their various issues and problems.

As part of our site’s plan to make it easy for everyone upgrading to 12.04 from either 10.04 or 11.10. we have documented the various steps that are necessary. And, of course, we have tried our best to ensure that the instructions are “precise” and up-to-date.

In the unfortunate circumstance that you find your upgrade process crawling like a snail, you can also automatically use a mirror that is close to you which will definitely help boost the downloading speed. Andrew Mitchell provides important guidelines on how exactly that is to be done.

Alternatively, if you find your mirror being severely hammered, you can also upgrade to 12.04 using the S3 mirrors.

If in case, your upgrading process is being bogged down by “404 Not found” errors, fear not. We have got it covered as well. All you need to do is just follow the instructions provided and you will be good to go in no time.

If any one of you have any other issues with your upgrading or you would like to help us help the users, you know where to find us. 😉
