Ubuntu Desktop and Servers users have a new version available to install and upgrade with various changes and upgrades. So I recommend desktop users to upgrade to this release But If you are running with Ubuntu LTS releases on your server, I don’t recommend you to upgrade to non-LTS release.
Upgrade to Ubuntu 18.10
For CLI lover users or working with Ubuntu server having CLI access only can follow below instruction to upgrade Ubuntu.
- Update current packages
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
- Install the update-manager-core package
sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
- Edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set Prompt value to normal
sudo vi /etc/update-manager/release-upgradesFile: /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
- Execute below command to launch upgrade tool
- Follow the on-screen instructions
The upgrade from Ubuntu 18.04 to Ubuntu 18.10 may take more time (depending on the speed of the machine and internet connection). Step away and allow the process to complete. When it finishes, reboot the machine, and you should be good to go.
