I see nothing in the docs to that effect, and, to the contrary, I see
specific blanket official recommendation, e.g.,:
> Were you maybe doing a manual `apt-get dist-upgrade`?
No. I was doing exactly what I said I was doing. Quoting from the
site-docs's ChangeLog file:
We 2011-03-30 Rick Moen <rick at linuxmafia.com>
* Installed package update-manager-core to acquire
/usr/bin/do-release-upgrade. Ran that tool to upgrade
Ubuntu Server from 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon to 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron
and then to 10.04.1 LTS Lucid Lynx.
Note: The unforgivably broken 8.04 LTS to 10.04 LTS upgrade step
required manually creating wrapper shell script
/usr/local/sbin/tar that execs /bin/tar with --touch flag.
Leaving that script in case something still needs it.
