My Ubuntu 15.10 system only reminds me to install Ubuntu 16.04, but I wish to install 16.10 version.

How could I upgrade to 16.10 directly?

  • sudo do-release-upgrade -d this will do the job.

    Please note that the -d switch means that you are offered developmental releases which are not released yet as well. Ubuntu 16.10 has already been released, so do-release-upgrade -d will probably offer you the work-in-progress Ubuntu 17.04. Nov 24 '16 at 13:50

    Skipping a LTS release is not recommended. Better to do a fresh install of 16.10. Nov 24 '16 at 13:51

You may have to upgrade to 16.04 first, and after this upgrade is completed, upgrade to 16.10.

I think possible to upgrade while skipping a version, but I wouldn't recommend doing so, as it could result in various problems after the upgrade.

You probably have set in Software and Upgrades that you should be notified only about new LTS (Long Term Support) versions. Ubuntu 16.04 is a LTS version, Ubuntu 16.10 isn't. You can see the setting you need to check in this blog entry, for example.

But as others have mentioned in answers and comments to this question, you should upgrade to the LTS version 16.04 first, and then in a second step to 16.10.

Try this,

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo update-manager -d

This last command should open the Update Manager tool where you’ll need to press a shiny ‘upgrade’ button. Do comment in case you run in trouble while doing this.
