Upgrade 1204 to 1404
Describes how to upgrade from LinuxMCE 1204 to 1404.
The normal way of upgrading between Ubuntu releases are the 'do-release-upgrade' command.
This does not work for LinuxMCE (most likely because the update tool disables 3rd party sources (like LinuxMCE) and we have to many dependencies to ubuntu packages for the upgrade to complete without breaking spectacular).
How to upgrade
Edit /etc/apt/source.list and replace all 'precise' with 'trusty'
sudo apt-get update
Then you will have to do some manual upgrades to avoid blowing the whole system away.
sudo apt-get install lmce-md-meta vdr-plugin-iptv pluto-simplephone pluto-storage-devices liblinphone5 libmediastreamer-base3 libupnp6 vlc vlc-nox libsmbclient samba pluto-vdr vdr vdr-plugin-remotetimers vdr-plugin-svdrpservice=1.0.0-5~trusty1
If you are not using vdr, then you can drop the vdr-related packages from the above command.
sudo apt-get upgrade

Preliminary report: tried do-release-upgrade - didn't succeed. Instead renamed all precise sources to trusty and ran apt-get upgrade, followed by apt-get dist-upgrade - and whole bunch of manual removal and reinstall ...
