Ubuntu time travel from 10.10 to 11.04 !

Today, for a brief instant, I wondered whether my Ubuntu has the power to upgrade to the future.

Here is what happened. I clicked on System > About Ubuntu and it showed the following message,

You are using Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal - released in April 2011 and supported until October 2012.

Even though my sleep schedule is irregular these days, I don't think I have upgraded to 11.04 Alpha version unconsciously. Hence, to quench my curiosity, I did some googling and found that similar stories are reported by users in the forums.

It is actually a bug in the ubuntu documentation which crept into the package ubuntu-docs version 10.10.4

To see the "True" information, use this command in the terminal

[bash]cat /etc/*release[/bash]


Ubuntu 11.04
