Currently I have Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 beta2 release. But in details it shows as Ubuntu 13.10. Please let me know how can I upgrade it 10 14.04 LTS final release(released 17th April). I tried in update-manager, but still it is not listing the new version.

You don't need to do anything apart from apt-get update and apt-get upgrade or simply wait until the new updates appear on the Update Manager. This will simply move your Beta 2 version to the final release. No need to download the ISO, reinstall everything or need to format.

So hold on a bit until Update Manager shows the new packages or do an:

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

And reboot. Enjoy 14.04 Final.

  • I think that here is another problem: Ubuntu Gnome 14.04 still shows 13.10. And the reboot is unnecessary. Apr 18, 2014 at 7:31
  • The reboot could be necessary if one of the updated packages is the kernel. For the 14.04 showing 13.10 that is a normal minor bug. It just means that the piece that holds the version was not updated. I suspect in the following days he will get a small update that fixes that. Apr 18, 2014 at 15:28
