Working on Xubuntu 16.04. I would like to upgrade to 18.04, without reinstall. What are the steps?

  • Try these commands: sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade && sudo apt dist-upgrade – George Udosen Apr 27 '18 at 16:06

    To tell you the truth, I just did the upgrade from Xubuntu 16.04 to 18.04 and now I am regretting it. Too many errors, video driver issues, and applications that end up on the apt upgrade that will not upgrade due to dependency issues. I would recommend that you wait for the first point release (18.04.1) due out in July of this year, or do a clean install of 18.04. The normal upgrade command is do-release-upgrade -d but I am warning you now that it may not go smooth at all. – Terrance Apr 27 '18 at 17:02

    This question was marked as a duplicate of existing questions, but the questions linked aren't duplicates - they are about upgrading to Ubuntu 18.04, not Xubuntu 18.04. If you're not careful about upgrading Xubuntu, it will be upgraded to Ubuntu. – Brian Kendig May 2 '18 at 1:40

    I confirm, that this question is NOT a duplicate. Please, unmark it. This is about XUBUNTU, not UBUNTU, and about version 18.04, not 16.04. – Przemysław Różycki Jun 6 '18 at 13:33
