I am using ubuntu 10.04LTS and getting upgradation notice from update manager. Can anybody please indicate how much data is downloaded for the process?
Is there any way I can back up the existing installed programs along with add-ons or plugins and do a live CD installation and reinstall the previous programs, rather than upgrading directly from 10.04 to 12.04?
I have downloaded & burnt iso of Ubuntu v11.10 & was trying to upgrade my current installation (running v11.04) when i ran into a strange issue. The installer (when i boot from media) does not detect my existing Ubuntu setup. It detects my Windows 7 installation & gives me 3 choices but NO upgrade choice.
I created a USB startup disk from ISO and booted using that to upgrade my 11.10 installation. But when I am not able to select Upgrade from Ubuntu 11.10 to Ubuntu 12.04. The radio button cannot be selected. I am doing a Network upgrade now.
Now that Fedora 18, aka Spherical Cow, has been released, users of Fedora 17 will likely be gearing up to upgrade. Before this latest release, upgrading an installation of Fedora requires a procedure that’s not very elegant.
With Fedora 18, the recommended upgrade tool is called FedUp (FEDora UPgrade).
The next Ubuntu version 11.04 Natty Narwhal is coming soon, if you intend to upgrade to 11.04 from current Ubuntu version there are 4 ways you can choose including online and offline upgrading.
Note: Make a backup of the sources, softwares, and important data, upgrade may cause something incompatible.
1.) GUI upgrading with update-manager
This is the most normal way to upgrade Ubu
