View Full Version : [ubuntu] Updating Ubuntu

December 29th, 2008, 05:55 AM
I am new to Ubuntu and linux so please bear with me...

So I have installed on my laptop Ubuntu 8.04, and I was wondering if it is possible to update to 8.10 without using a CD. My laptop doesn't have a CD drive and the external one I used isn't in my possession anymore. So my main question is, is this possible? and if so how do I do it?

You can do so through the normal updates feature. Instructions here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading
