I have a dell precision 7750 with the Dell-supplied ubuntu 20.04 installed. I am wondering about trying to get on Jellyfish (motivated most proximally by the desire to upgrade Evolution, as Jellyfish supports .44 and there are some bugs that keep glitching me in evolution on 20.04). Dell only officially supports 18.04 and 20.04 on the precision 7750.

Also I am getting this warning when I try "sudo do-release-upgrade -d":

$ sudo do-release-upgrade -d
Checking for a new Ubuntu release
In /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades Prompt
is set to never so upgrading is not possible.
So it seems Dell would prefer that we not do this. The ubuntu version I have installed is the pre-installed Dell version of 20.04 which includes some tweaks for their hardware, drivers, etc.

I'm guessing it's best if I sit and wait for official support, does anyone happen to have tried this or otherwise tried upgrading in place the official Dell distributions?

I guess if I were to try to do d-release-upgrade, really the better thing to do would be a clean install of 22, but I'd rather not do that as apparently there are some issues with hardware not working properly if you're not on the official dell build (ymmv but I have little ability to troubleshoot anything that doesnt work out of the box).
