Ubuntu – How to upgrade Ubuntu using Live DVD?


I have a very slow internet connection (200kbps), and don't want to wait for it to install all packages from the web. Is it possible to upgrade to 14.04 from 12.04 using the Live DVD?

But of course. In theory it is possible to upgrade Ubuntu from any version to any (newer) version.

However, it may not work due to dependencies. Every single upgrade goes ahead and breaks an entire package chain.

Go head with it, just make sure you back up.

Just note that the easiest way to do an upgrade would be the wonderful clean install.
