View Full Version : [SOLVED] ubuntu version programs and updates

January 31st, 2018, 02:40 AM
I would like to know why the iso I downloaded from ubuntu was 16.04.2 but at the moment it is running version 16.04.1 at least is this printing running command uname -a do I have this is normal to change version?
It is configured for long support updates because it was 16.04.2 to 16.04.1
4.13.0-32-generic #35~16.04.1-Ubuntu

it is possible to update the repositories change if update download server via terminal without entering programs and updates via graphical interface
Thanks for listening.

Do you mean

lsb_release -a

That final version number refers to the version of the live disk image. 16.04 is the original, 16.04.1 has some updates already included, 16.04.2 has some more updates included and the HWE stack, 16.04.3 adds some more opdates and so 16.04.4 and .5. After you installed the system and installed all available updates, that number doesn't really matter. The only difference is that 16.04 and 16.04.1 don't install the HWE stack. If everything works fine, that doesn't matter. Else, you can add it yourself.

I actually got confused as kernel might be 16.04.1 and the ubuntu version I'm running is 16.04.3
Thanks for listening.
