View Full Version : [all variants] Upgrading from Gutsy to Hardy?

May 18th, 2008, 04:25 PM
Hi fellow Linux users.
I've just installed Kubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) today, is there any way where you can upgrade to Hardy Heron (8.04) from within Ubuntu.
Do I need to download 8.04 from the internet and install it or can I just run an update (reboot if necessary)?'


Edit: I can't seem to find it in Adept nor is there any notifications.

No need to reinstall. You can just update and reboot. To do so, use the update manager to check for updates, install them, then check for updates again. It will notify you that a new distro version is available, and you can begin the update process.
