While the new version of Ubuntu has not yet been released, the truth is that in the absence of 9 days, The distribution is stable enough to be used on many computers and even to upgrade virtual systems that we may want to use for testing. For all those and for those who are not afraid of making a damn mistake, this little tutorial is yours.
The first thing we need to do to upgrade our Ubuntu 15.10 to Ubuntu 16.04 is modify Software settings because the order dist-upgrade recognize the new version. At this point we just need to proceed to update the distribution and we will already have Ubuntu 16.04 ready on our computer.
Preliminary steps before upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04
So first we go to «Software and updates«, In the window that appears we go to the tab«Pre-release updates“Take the part where indicated”Notify me of a new version of Ubuntu»Select» For any new version»At this point, we open a terminal and write the following:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo update-manager -d
Upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04
After running these commands the Ubuntu upgrade wizard will open which will start the process to have Ubuntu 16.04. If we really want this to happen once Ubuntu 16.04 is on the street, that is, we do it days after April 21, we have to do the same previous steps we mentioned before, but in the terminal we will write the Next:
sudo do-release-upgrade -d
Personally I am not in favor of updating operating systems when they are under development, especially when it comes to a distribution with many new features, but in this case we must say that in the absence of nine days for its official launch and l being LTS, Ubuntu 16.04 can well be used in production equipment What do you think?
