View Full Version : [SOLVED] Fast Q About Upgrading to Lubuntu 18.04

So, I just downloaded Lubuntu 18.04 and successfully did an encrypted install on an old X40 "test system."

Is there a way of painlessly upgrading my existing encrypted Lubuntu 16.04.1 systems to 18.04?

When I use this sequence on one of them,

sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade && sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
sudo nano /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
sudo do-release-upgrade d

The last command tells me that no upgrade is available. Is this because the Lubuntu upgrade sequence is not yet available, or is there a separate method for Lubuntu (as opposed to Ubuntu)?

Thanks!

Bill

wjbmd48; Hello;

Yeah. the LTS upgrade path will not be opened up until the .1 release.
see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BionicBeaver/ReleaseNotes#Upgrading_from_Ubuntu_16.04_LTS_or_17 .10


just the way it is
