For anyone else interested I had a look to see if I could update my version of Ubuntu from 18.04 and it seems there's no release available yet.

Ok, let's see where this goes, currently 14:15 here in the UK and I've kicked this off after setting the Prompt=normal in release-upgrades.

do upgrade confirmation

I have a 2 core i5 @ 2.7 GHz, once complete I'll check with lsb_release -a

14:30 so it looks like this failed, I got this prompt:

Not sure what it's for but retrying didn't work so I aborted out and got this mesasage:

Not going anywhere now 😬
