Hello, I am having trouble with installing GNOME 17.04 from USB stick and wanted to install 16.04 , and then install GNOME 17.04 over it. Is it possible directly from download or running some script in 16.04?

Sorry this is not very clear to me?
Will 16.04 install? Or do you have 16.04 installed and want to upgrade to 17.04?
EDIT: And do you have any other OS's like Windows installed?

No other system on the computer. 16.04 installs from the CD, but 17.04 does not from the USB. So I install 16.04 from the CD, and then would like to install 17.04 from there using some sudo command?

Hmmm? This is not not the preferred way to do this, but seeing that it will will be a fresh install you could in theory, after 16.04 is installed and most importantly
updated fully.
So first run:

sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade

You'll first need to make sure update-manager-core is present (it may already be installed):

sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

Next, run:

sudo do-release-upgrade

You may need to check /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and change the line:




for the release to show up.
