Can I skip over releases?
What should I do for this? I know, that upgrade goes step by step, but HOW? Thanks!
This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
you would need to upgrade to 10.10 then 11.04. You can't just skip a release. but you can upgrade from 10.04 to 12.04 (LTS to LTS).
there are a lot of questions on this point at the site, here's some.
