Ubuntu 10.04
« on: October 05, 2016, 07:31:57 am »
Mark Greaves installed Ubuntu  LTS for me a few years ago - Hi Mark hope you are well.
I`ve not used it for a while but have now that I do have found it`s out of date and very limited in it`s scope
Can I upgrade and if so how?
Thanks

If you have 10.04 you may need to do a new install.

...But you could try upgrading to the next LTS (12.04)  -it might work. https://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/03/upgrade-from-ubuntu-10-04-to-ubuntu-12-04/

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo do-release-upgrade
does it offer an upgrade ?

I doubt if you have any other option than a reinstall then .. you left it too long and 10.04 is totally unsupported now.

Can you remember how you installed Ubuntu ?

Is Ubuntu the ONLY OS on this machine ?

Do you know if this PC can boot from a USB stick ? .. or only a CD/DVD ?

How about Peppermint 7 or Ubuntu 16.04 or Linux Mint 18 ?
(disclosure - I'm on the Peppermint team, so read into that what you will)
