Filed under
Linux

All you need to do is to run few commands to upgrade your existing Ubuntu to latest version.

Previously I have written few posts with every new release of Ubuntu. This time I was not willing to do the same. This procedure is identical, the only reason I cameup with this post is to add one more command.

Following commands will update Ubuntu from shell.
