• Upgrade ubuntu server from 16.04 to 18.04?

    From jp@bloiiing@yahoo.invalid to alt.os.linux.ubuntu on Wed Feb 24 04:49:49 2021
    From Newsgroup: alt.os.linux.ubuntu

    Hello,

    I am under ubuntu 16.04 and I am trying to upgrade my system from
    version 16.04 to 18.04. I do:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
    sudo apt dist-upgrade
    sudo apt autoremove
    sudo do-release-upgrade

    and the system answers me:

    Please install all available updates for your release before upgrading

    Does anyone know how I can go about installing all the available
    updates, so the command do-release-upgrade will works?

    Thank you in advance.

    To do a system upgrade only the first 2 steps are necessary.

    You can also back up your files to removable media and then download 18.04 from the Ubuntu site. Note, that 20.10 is the most recent release.

    If it is production server then stick to 18.04 or 20.04, they are to LTS versions.

    May not make a difference but I use apt-get update and then apt-get
    upgrade and have never had a problem upgrading remote systems like this.

    That doesn't seem like a package from Ubuntu and clearly it's not the
    latest version? So how about it if you install the latest and then
    proceed with do-release-update?

    And of course, if this is for an important server, then maybe check your backups first and plan how to get things running if something goes wrong.

    If you have a package on hold at a certain version so-release-upgrade
    will not proceed until that package is upgraded. To list help packages:

    apt-mark showhold

    To see what version you need to upgrade to for any packages the above
    command lists use

    apt-cache policy PACKAGENAME

    to remove hold on package

    sudo apt-mark unhold PACKAGENAME

    then

    sudo apt upgrade

    OK, si rien de tout cela ne fonctionne, vous avez 3 options:

    (1) Mettre à niveau le logiciel vers la version 17.1, puis vers la
    version 18.04.

    (2) Forcer la mise à niveau de 18.04: C'est risqué.
    --Sauvegardez toutes votre data;
    --Mettre à niveau Core Manager:> sudo apt install update-manager-core --Attendez qu'Ubuntu termine l'installation de Core Manager. C'est tres important.
    --Tapez ensuite:> sudo do-release-upgrade -d

    (3) Installez la mise à niveau depuis une clé USB.
