Yes,it is "You are using Ubuntu 10.10- the Maverick Meerkat - released in October 2010 and supported until April 2012."
Is upgrade available for 10.1 to 10.04 or does it require a rebuild?

FYI - if you like the look of 10.1, you can use 10.04, which is one of the LTS releases. The LTS releases have very long support lives - thru April 2013 for desktop and April 2015 for the server version of 10.04. Ubuntu 12.04 is an LTS release, which is why it's such a big deal.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.1 and the updates stopped long ago.The upside is the install functions perfectly. I very much like the clean desktop as opposed to the new 12.04 and am looking at this MATE overlay. Annoying that Ubuntu updates so frequently,and I read something that the Debian folks also give Shuttleworth grief for that. I was offered an update to 11.x ages ago but can't get anything better than a crippled 3G connect out here in the woods.Seems a complete backup up and rebuild is all that is available. I get my ISOs from a friends DSL. Aloha LUAU people.

Ubuntu/HP? You mean an HP product with Ubuntu? Which Ubuntu version number and desktop would that be?

I'm guessing that Synaptic, the GUI DEB package manager, disappeared. If all else fails, aptitude is the best console / terminal-based package manager I've seen. You can do _everything_ from that, with a menu-driven interface that doesn't take a lot of time to get used to. I really wish the RPM/YUM package family under Redhat / CentOS had something as excellent as aptitude.

Good Luck,

Seeing the post from Jeff reminded me to ask this.

I have a net book with Ubuntu/HP on it. (All of the rest of my boxes run FreeBSD) And the last time the updates ran part of the menu vanished to an auto select feature.

Also I no longer have any flash that works for this unit either. Tried to update but doesnt finish install.

Does any one have a suggestion to any link to a how to make things install on the version of Ubuntu that is on the machine? Or do I have to upgrade the version?
