Ubuntu: Upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 to 14.10 [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

i am new to ubuntu.. I had ubuntu 14.04 installed and today i want to upgrade it to ubuntu 14.10.

Is it safe to upgrade? P.S. I have faced many problems during past days on ubuntu upgrades :(


Have you tried the usual " do-release-upgrade " - checkout this article for the many ways to upgrade ubuntu.

Upgrading using the command line:

Run do-release-upgrade in a terminal

sudo do-release-upgrade  

If fails edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set Prompt=lts:

nano /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades  

Then run again the above command:

sudo do-release-upgrade  


-Open the Dash

-Type Software in the search field

-Click Software & Updates

-Select the 3rd Tab called Updates

-Select For any new version from the Notify me of a new Ubuntu version drop-down

-Close the Software & Updates tool

-Open the Dash

-Type update-manager

-When the Update Manager opens, it should inform you that a new release is available

-Click Upgrade

-Follow the on-screen instructions

I hope this helped
