I'm running a Dell Inspiron 3551 which came with Ubuntu 14.04 pre-installed. Recently, my computer would not boot to Ubuntu, so I had to recover Ubuntu, i.e., reinstall Ubuntu from scratch.
First, I ran the command
dist-upgrade to upgrade my packages.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Given that I am starting with a clean system, I wanted to update to Ubuntu 16.04. I found that I can do this by running the command:
If I update to Ubuntu 16.04,
will it break some of the old 14.04 packages that I had installed?
Is it generally recommended to do
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade?
