    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.

    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgrade

    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.
