    In-place upgrade 10.04 to 14.04.4

    Is it possible to do an in-place upgrade from 10.04 to 14.04.4 using the DVD? i.e., should I get an upgrade option when booting the DVD?
    If not, what sudo commands would I need to run from terminal?

    moot2; Ouch .

    The software repository for release 10.04 no longer exists If one were to attempt an inplace upgrade will have to go the EOL path. That in and if it's self is fraught with doubt; as so much in the operating system has changed from 10.04 . Make sure you have all your data backed up prior to proceeding with:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades

    While it is possible
    may not be the best solution
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PopularPages

    Happy ubuntu'n !

    I would think you'd need to go from 10.04 to 12.04 then 14.04; but so much has changed since 10.04 you'd be better off backing up any sensitive data, then doing a clean install of 14.04 or 16.04.

    should I get an upgrade option when booting the DVD?
    When booting the DVD the only options are Try Ubuntu or Install Ubuntu. It has always been that way. If we load the Ubuntu DVD in an already running Ubuntu installation, well, then we might get an offer to upgrade. I, personally, would only risk doing that to upgrade from 10.04 to 14.04 as an experiment. Expect failure.

    Regards.

    Re: In-place upgrade 10.04 to 14.04.4

    Thanks all for the replies. I am relatively new to Ubuntu and want to use old laptops (32 bit, Pentium 4, etc.) as learning tools for beginners to see that they don't need MS to spoon-feed them everything. That said... I have to learn too.
    I was trying to find i386 based .iso images - but - for some reason it seems difficult, for me anyway. I did finally find 10.04 and while installing that found 14.04.4 in i386 flavor. I would like to just start with clean installs of 16.04 (or most resent ver) but I cannot find a i386 32bit image.
    Can anyone tell me where to get a Ubuntu 16.04 .iso - from a authorized Ubuntu.org site?

    I guess you will be more happy with Xubuntu or Ubuntu MATE:

    Thanks for the suggestions... I will give them a try... any pros-cons for them vs Ubuntu? I would like to keep the resource usage at an absolute minimum, but still have browser, email, etc...
