    Upgrade 7.04

    I currently have Ubuntu 7.04 installed however recently it came to my attention that I should perhaps upgrade the operating system in order to ensure that I am not behind with the new features.

    What should my course of action be in order to perform an EOL upgrade on such an old system?

    Hi angus-higgins.

    There is some good documentation for doing this, but it may be less painful to do a fresh install.

    I may be mistaken, but I think you have to upgrade each version until you get to the one you want.

    Much easier in this case is a fresh install:
    - faster
    - prob. no troubles

    If you don´t have separate home partition make one.After that do fresh install.Better and faster then upgrades.
