Ubuntu: Upgrade from 13.10 to LTS Possible?


My infrastructure is on AWS. All my ec2 server are running on ubuntu 13.10. Since 13.10 is EOL last year, i want to upgrade it to 14.04.01 LTS which has 5 year lifecycle.

What i want: i want to upgrade it to 14.04.01 LTS which has 5 year lifecycle.

Problem: When i run command ' do-release-upgrade' it shows me available version is 14.04.2.

But i dont want to upgrade it to 14.04.2 as it will be EOL in Aug 2016, instead i want to upgarde to 14.04.01 which will be EOL in 2019.

Can somebody please tell me how can i upgrade directly from 13.10 to 14.04.01 LTS.



As it appears in this picture the versions of 14.04.X will have different version of the kernel so will continue with the kernel of V3.13 till April 2019 while 14.04.2 will have 3.16 for 18 months then to be upgraded to 14.04.5 with the version of kernel o be applied then

14.04.X Kernel Support Schedule

however if you still want to upgrade to 14.04.1 you may download the ISO Image from this LINK and perform Upgrading by using the CD image

Insert the live CD or boot from the live CD to start installing it will give a option of upgrading to 13.04 if we have a functional Internet connection only. It will automatically detect installed applications and install the updated version of your applications also.

If you download an ISO, the recommendation is to perform a md5sum check to ensure both the ISO downloaded and the burned CD are valid. More Info About upgrading in this LINK


You did not quite understand it. 14.04.2 is LTS. It is just a service release of 14.04. Shorter life is only for kernel version, but it can be upgraded later. So just upgrade to 14.04.2.
