#StackBounty: #do-release-upgrade Unable to upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04, no real error?

Bounty: 50

I received the notice that there’s an update for my desktop install, but I’m unable to do so. There’s no real error messages that I can see. I’ve run sudo apt autoremove, sudo apt upgrade, and sudo apt install, and it gives 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. This is my screen when I run do-release-upgrade:
