A notice posted on elementaryOS.org said the following:
… users of elementary OS Jupiter may be prompted to upgrade to Ubuntu 11.04. We strongly urge you not to do so [...] because the upgrade process may render your install unusable.
This advice could apply to many Ubuntu-derivative operating systems such as Linux Mint, so check the website of your chosen distribution before going through the dist-upgrade process.
Why is this an issue?
Natty bought a whole host of new features to the Ubuntu desktop experience, and most likely it’s changes stemming from Unity that will cause issues for distros expecting a fairly clean Gnome 2 setup available.
Issues aside, we reviewed elementary OS Jupiter when it was released a month ago.
Had any issues with the upgrade process? Post in the comments below.
