Hi everyone.

I tried to update from Xubuntu 20.04.1 LTS to 20.04.2, but for some reason, I can't easily do so.

I executed the "sudo apt update" command before using these three specific upgrade commands: "sudo apt dist-upgrade," "sudo apt full-upgrade," and "sudo apt upgrade."

The upgrade commands didn't work at all, and executing the "cat /etc/issue" and "lsb_release -a" commands both report "Xubuntu 20.04.1 LTS."
 
$ apt list --upgradable
should give u list of packages which can be upgraded

$ apt install PACKAGE-NAME
can be used to manually update packages one by one, just replace PACKAGE-NAME with correct name from list

$ sudo apt upgrade
should upgrade all packages listed as upgradeable (from first command)


if u having issues with these continue here:
$ sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade (just to make sure :p)
then reboot (if kernel changes, reboot is needed)

$ sudo apt install update-manager-core
$ sudo nano /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades

at bottom of that file change LTS to normal (Prompt=normal)
Ctrl+0 -> enter -> Ctrl+x to save and close nano
do-release-upgrade
then reboot
