upgrade januty to lucid


Ok b4 you ask, I am running Maverick on my daily box, and am having a few teathing problems with samba. Like it won't start, and I now have to shut down firestarter. Apart from that it works.

So on my server box, I don't want to be without a firewall.

Ok, here;s the question, how do I do the upgrade from a command line? or come to that the gui. but I want lucid.

Lucid is LTS so it is still in support.

but you are advised to use System > Administration > Update Manager and with luck it will show you that a new distro is available.

If you have a lucid CD, just put it in the drive with jaunty running and a dialog asks if you want to update.

By CLI

edit /etc/apt/sources.lst and change where it says "jaunty" to say "lucid".

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

warning: this last can be a nasty hack these days. Expect to do post-upgrade configuration. As always, make a backup.

You can set it to only tell you about LTS releases.

Upgrading Jaunty or Karmic to Lucid

sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
sudo do-release-upgrade

or use update manager:
sudo update-manager -d

the dist-upgrade method does not seem to need editing sources.list file. cute.
I didn't know about the first one.

Well you can tell its a server box. don't use it directly. just discovered the cd drive in it didn;t work!! so have been faffing around with that.

Will try your suggestion. will report back!

That first one is the preferred method.
Gah! It's a server! Change mode:

sudo do-release-upgrade --mode="server"

(see man page)

Good luck.

The problem with Update Manager is that you *cannot* skip Karmic to upgrade from Jaunty to Lucid, for example. That's why adding the repositories manually is a much better idea.

Thanks to you all

Well, I tried the command line, upgrade mentioned above. It worked so far, then it crashed. Restart and all sorts of things were missing.

.....

A nice clean install from the Lucid disk. We got there in the end.
I must say I don't think it was Ubuntu's fault the upgrade broke, it was the state of the server.

Anyways all happy now. Just got to install the apps I forgot now.

Thanks again for your help!
