    Upgrade to Server 18.04.4 from terminal

    My file server is currently running Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS, with no issues. I see that 18.04.4 has been released. Should I upgrade, since I'm having no issues with the running install? If I should, would I just use do-dist-upgrade or do-release-upgrade in terminal? Is there any danger in doing this on a running server? Since everything is working, don't want to take any chances. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    You should update (within the 18.04 family) but not upgrade (to a higher release number).

    Please run
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    and
    Code:
    sudo apt dist-upgrade
    and post the output in CODE tags. In spite of upgrade being part of the command name it's still an operation within the 18.04 family.

    You might need a reboot afterwards so plan accordingly if you have users 24/7.

    Good, just run the two commands with short intervals and your system should be in good shape.
