Hi,

I wanted to upgrade from 14.04.3 to 14.04.5. I did mount the 14.0.4.5 dvd on the existing server and pointed the sources.list to 14.0.4.5 and tried the below commands.

apt-get clean
apt-get upgrade

However the above doesn't work. Am i missing something here? How do i perform the upgrade?


# apt-get update
Ign file: trusty InRelease
Get:1 file: trusty Release.gpg [198 B]
Get:2 file: trusty Release [4,592 B]
Ign file: trusty/main Translation-en_IN
Ign file: trusty/main Translation-en
Ign file: trusty/restricted Translation-en_IN

I admit I know little to nothing about servers and their setup.

There might be some clues for you on this page. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack

What does command
lsb_release -a
uname -a give as output? It will probably tell you that you are already on 14.04.5 if you have been updating in the usual fashion; the one thing it may not have done is give you the newest kernel from the LTS Enablement Stack, linked to by westie457.

Thanks. But No, i do not want to upgrade kernel alone. I just want entire packages to upgrade to 14.04.5 release.

I did check that as well. Here is the output


# lsb_release -a ; uname -a
No LSB modules are available.

I think you have misunderstood the background to the various point releases that are available for the LTS versions of Ubuntu.

As an example I installed this Xubuntu-16.04 system using the 16.04.1 iso file but now when I run that
lsb_release -a
uname -a what I see is
$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial
$ uname -a
Linux XubuntuXenial 4.4.0-96-generic #119-Ubuntu SMP Tue Sep 12 14:59:54 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
ie, I am now on the 16.04.3 version, though not using the LTS Enablement Stack for 17.04, as the current kernel and xorg versions run fine on my hardware.
All other packages are, however, exactly the same version as they would be had I started with the 16.04.3 point iso file, as will all yours be if you have kept the system fully updated.

Okay, let me make my point clear.. How do i upgrade my current 14.04.3 to 14.04.5 version (without reinstallation).... How do i do that?

Not much to do but install the xenial hwe stack for trusty.
See here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack#Ubuntu_14.04_LTS_-_Trusty_Tahr
You can also run the hwe-support-status commands

hwe-support-status --verbose
hwe-support-status --show-replacements
hwe-support-status --show-all-unsupported
They should give you a rundown of what packages to install and what, if any, need to be removed.
(Adding... the output should closely match what's posted in the link)
