    Upgrading Ubuntu from 14.04 to 16.04

    I have Ubuntu 14.04 installed on my PC. I want to upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04.

    I downloaded ISO file, made bootable USB. I do not want to live update from internet as my internet is slow and can take hours to finish. So what is the best way to upgrade my Ubuntu installation to 16.04 from the ISO ?

    Will i able to upgrade existing installation with out problem or i should reinstall everything as fresh ?

    My own experience has been that a fresh install is best when upgrading the OS. You can opt of of downloading updates during the installation. (That might even be the default.)
