Update Linux Mint 9 to newest Ubuntu 10.10

The Ubuntu 10.10 is finally here,but I don't see nothing impressing into this release. I only need updated packages like Pidgin 2.7.3,Geany 0.19.1 and so on from Ubuntu 10.10  Maverick Meerkat.

First we need to open terminal and type:
sudo apt dist-upgrade    

And secondly you can try to add a Ubuntu 10.10 repositories into /etc/apt/sources.list using great online Ubuntu Sources List Generator

Open Update-Manager and press Refresh button. You now should get lots of new packages to update.

Also there is alternative way I found on blog

Open terminal and type:
sudo perl -p -i.lucid -e 's/lucid/maverick/' /etc/apt/sources.list

Now open the Update Manager from Menu -> System -> Update Manager and click the refresh button.

I couldn't install packages due error "Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first."

If you get this message to simple open deselect packages in Update Manager which is 0 bytes of size. It worked fine for me and I am downloading now a 1251 package from Maverick Meerkat repositories.  :)
