Error Fix: Ubuntu 13.04 Asks for Update to Ubuntu 13.04

Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you how to fix the Ubuntu 13.04 asks for update to Ubuntu 13.04 Error.

Error message:

"New release '13.04' available.
Run 'do-release-upgrade' to upgrade to it."

But I am already using Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail.

The fix:

$ sudo rm /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available


So, there is something wrong with: /etc/update-motd.d/91-release-upgrade

The /etc/update-motd.d/91-release-upgrade file calls /usr/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-motd and checks if the /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available file exists.

If the /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available file is found, it goes to motd. If the release-upgrade-available file is not found, it calls /usr/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/check-new-release.

After the upgrade, the file /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available should be deleted. If it is not deleted, it gives you this error. To fix it, remove the file by hand.

$ sudo rm /var/lib/ubuntu-release-upgrader/release-upgrade-available
