Unable to update from Ubuntu 20.04.6 LTS to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

I am unable to update from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

Getting below info for lsb release and do upgrade command –

lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 20.04.6 LTS
Release:    20.04
Codename:   focal

Checking for a new Ubuntu release
Please install all available updates for your release before upgrade

What shall I do ?

Since 22.04 is not a development release, and because 24.04 has not been released yet, simply run the following commands instead.

First, make sure everything is up to date:

sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade

and then do release upgrade without the -d option:

sudo do-release-upgrade

Also, if you edited /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades to set Prompt=normal then you should set it back to Prompt=lts before trying again.
