I have finally got around to doing some upgrades yesterday.
First off at work I upgraded my system from Kubuntu Fistey Fawn 7.04 to Gutsy Gibbon 7.10
I found the following command useful to check the version of my system “lsb_release -a”, both before and after the upgrade.
user@desktop:~$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 7.10 Release: 7.10 Codename: gutsy user@desktop:~$
I followed the instructions to upgrade on the release page, and on the whole these worked. Although after the full upgrade, I did have to turn off “Recommended Updates” and “Proposed Updates”. Then I had to reboot, turn them back on and reload the update list to get the “Version Upgrade” option.
Other than that, the upgrade ran through with no problems at all!
I also did the same upgrade on the Ubuntu Fistey Install, on the laptop. That went through a dream, it installed a few updates, said it needed to reboot, then it said “Distribution Upgrade Available”, I clicked install, job done.
Next on the cards was WordPress
I upgraded from WordPress 2.2.2 to WordPress 2.3 with no problems, and in double quick time! WordPress upgrades are so straight forward. I have just seen the announcement for WordPress 2.3.1, so I also just downloaded and installed that. Great, No Problems! So I am on the latest 2.3.1.
