Lucid Lynx (Ubuntu 10.04) to Maverick Meerkat (Ubuntu 10.10) – step by step
In the process of upgrading Lucid to Maverick , those who are new to GNOME 3 like me will miss the system->administrator menu here.
Jotting down the steps involved in upgrade process, might be of help to someone new to the environment.
Note: This is absolutely not for the expert geeks 🙂
1. Open the terminal and type
2. Upgrade Manager will open showing the latest available release
Note:- If Normal Release option is not selected in settings the upgrade manager will only show the LTS releases available and 10.10 is not a LTS release.
3. Click on upgrade button and on confirmation the upgrade process will start.
This is where the system will prepare for the upgrade, set up a channel for download, fetch the packages and install it. The fetching of packages might take time depending on your internet speed.
After installation your system will reboot and Ubuntu 10.10 is ready for your service.
Now the terminal way of doing the same steps
sudo aptitude install update-manager-core
sudo do-release-upgrade -d
Well thats from my store signing off and waiting for my packges to download till then cyao.
