This question already has an answer here:
The last week of next month ubuntu will most likely release 18.04 LTS. Now my system is 14.04 and next month I want to upgrade it to 18.04. Can I directly upgrade my system from 14.04 to 18.04 or I have to first upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 and then to 18.04? I really want to avoid the second method of upgrading.
How should I update 14.04 to 16.04. I tried this method
sudo update-manager -d and installed all the necessary software and restarted the system. Again I run
sudo update-manager -d and it showed that my computer is upto date but doesnt have any button to update to 16.04
