Yes you will have to upgrade to 19.10 first I believe. Basically, here's the steps:
Since ubuntu normally only tells you to upgrade when there is an LTS version out, you will need to change that in order to prevent any problem during the installation. Use your preferred editor and type:
sudo nano /etc/update-manager/release-upgradesAt the bottom, you should see the text
prompt=lts. If you see that, change the
normal. However if you don't see it you are good.
run the command
do-release-upgrade -cThis command checks Ubuntu’s servers for any available updates and informs you which version of Ubuntu you’ll be upgrading to.
The previous command checks for available updates, and if you see the current update that you want to upgrade to, execute the command,
- Just follow along with what the command lines tell you and you should be good to go!
