I'm courious if there is any recommendation to configure fresh Ubuntu Server (date, hosts, networking) before "apt-get upgrade" or there is no difference?


Update everything first. Some upgrades will often ask you if you want to replace your configuration files with their new default configurations, and that can be a headache to decide.

Save yourself the trouble; update first, then configure. The only exception should be choosing a custom update mirror :)
