View Full Version : [ubuntu] Automatic update from 7.10 to 8.04?

May 20th, 2009, 07:02 AM
So, it looks like they are forcing me to update to 8.04.
Is the updater fully automated? Like, no user interaction needed?

My PC that is running 7.10 is being used as a server and has no kb, mouse or monitor.

All updates are done remotely.

What you can do is edit /etc/apt/sources.list to say hardy instead of gutsy. After that you can do an aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade && aptitude dist-upgrade.

There will be some user interaction needed, but that pretty much consists of hitting the enter key.
