It was pointed out to me this morning that my previous Ubuntu upgrade instructions did not include upgrading Ubuntu Server. I thought I’d take a second and type those up as well. They are pretty simple (as all of the upgrade options intend to be), so you really shouldn’t need to do much.
Preparing for the Upgrade – Ubuntu Server
You’ll want to make sure that your current installation is completely up to date first. Repeat the below steps until no more updates are offered:
- sudo aptitude update
- sudo aptitude upgrade
- sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
Upgrading Ubuntu 7.04 to 7.10 – Ubuntu Server
To upgrade your Ubuntu Server from 7.04 to 7.10 follow these few steps and you’ll be presented with a menu that will walk you through the upgrade process.
- sudo aptitude install update-manager-core
- sudo do-release-upgrade
Enjoy. Between this and the previous tutorial on upgrading Ubuntu I would hope that everyone is covered. If you run into upgrading problems please report them on launchpad and double check that you’ve followed all of these steps correctly.
