Ubuntu 12.10 Reaches EOL On The 16th Of April. How To Upgrade To Ubuntu 14.04 Via Ubuntu 13.10

Hello Linux Geeksters. As I have previously announced, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal reaches end of life (EOL) starting with the 16th of May 2014, meaning that it will not receive any updates after this date.

Ubuntu 12.10 Reaches EOL On The 16th Of April. How To Upgrade To Ubuntu 14.04 Via Ubuntu 13.10

From the official announcement:

“Ubuntu announced its 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) release more than 18 months ago, on October 18, 2012. Since changes to the Ubuntu support cycle mean that Ubuntu 13.04 has reached end of life before Ubuntu 12.10, the support cycle for Ubuntu 12.10 has been extended slightly to overlap with the release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. This will allow users to move directly from Ubuntu 12.10 to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (via Ubuntu 13.10).”

While the support for Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander ends in July 2014, it is advised that you upgrade from Ubuntu 12.10 to Ubuntu 13.10 and next, to Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr LTS.

In this article I will show you how to upgrade from Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal to Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander and next to Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, via the command-line interface.

How to upgrade from Ubuntu 12.10 to Ubuntu 13.10. Install the update-manager-core tool, if it is not already installed:

$ sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

Next, start the upgrade process and follow the graphical instructions:

$ sudo do-release-upgrade

How to upgrade from Ubuntu 13.10 to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Just repeat the process and follow the installation wizzard:

$ sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
$ sudo do-release-upgrade
