Default How to update linux mint 10 to 11.04 natty narwhal - 04-29-2011, 03:28 | posts: 4,842 | Location: jersey shore US (unfortunately)

I did it by editing the sources.list.

Just copy paste the relevant sources.

open terminal and type:
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
It should look like this (if you didn't add any other sources.)

Code:
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ julia main upstream import romeo
deb-src http://packages.linuxmint.com/ julia main upstream import romeo #Added by software-properties
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ natty partner
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ natty free non-free

#deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ julia main upstream import romeo
#deb-src http://packages.linuxmint.com/ julia main upstream import romeo #Added by software-properties
#deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick main restricted universe multiverse
#deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick-updates main restricted universe multiverse
#deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick-security main restricted universe multiverse
#deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ maverick partner
#deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ maverick free non-free
After that do

Code:
sudo apt-get update --fix-missing && apt-get dist-upgrade && init6
Some visual stuff changed like the splash screen and the login screen (ubuntu 11.04 stock) but otherwise no issues.

no, that doesn't work for linux mint. I've tried all the regular commands for ubuntu and the only way is to update the sources first.
