How to Upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS from 14.04 LTS

Finally, the day has come. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS has been just released today. In this post, I will cover how to upgrade your two-years old system 14.04 LTS to the shin new 16.04 LTS.

First, verify that release upgrader is set to lts
$ cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades

The last line should read

Next, make sure that your system is up to date
$ sudo apt-get upgrade -y

Next, if you are using Ubuntu Desktop, run
$ sudo update-manager -d

If you are using Ubuntu Server, run
$ sudo do-release-upgrade -d

That's it!
