i just noticed the typo we seem to be replicating it's called romeo not romero

It's waiting for Mint to grow up so it can meet Julia

I know upgrading your OS is frowned upon around here with the official advice being to back up Home and reinstall from scratch, it would be cool if Mint would allow for updating like Ubuntu does.

Oh but Linux Mint does allow for updating like Ubuntu with dist upgrade set, and we can break things with this just like you can in Ubuntu. :lol:
See this post: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=9146
Somehow though, me thinks you meant something different, like rolling updates?

Clem has at least started to think about a way to upgrade between versions in an easy way using mintInstall. Perhaps not ready to Elyssa, but I would think to the next version (ver 6)

The line in sources.list is to be
deb http://www.linuxmint.com/repository romeo daryna
for Daryna. Change to celena or cassandra for these versions

Could you put check now button on the menu that appears after a right-click on the mintUpdate icon?
I don't see any connection between the padlock (I'm not sure about the word) and the updater. I think it would be more appropriate if set other icon. Unfortunately, I don't have any ideas of what it might be.

Clem:

I would like to request a new feature for future releases of mintUpdate.

I would like to have a "never install" or "ignore this packet" function, for example if one manually installed a newer kernel and mintUpdate offers you a minor version. I installed 2.6.24 for example and mintUpdate always asks me to install 2.6.22-*

Could you please consider implementing that functionality?

Thanks!
