Ubuntu – Upgrading to 14.10 from iso


I have 14.04.1 on harddisk. Is it possible to upgrade system to 14.10 from iso file/dvd/usb?

  • You can upgrade to Ubuntu 14.10 via two options, the first way is through the 'Software Updater' http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/upgrade the second method, and the one I do myself and recommend others do aswell would be a complete reinstall using a USB or CD/DVD

    Download the Ubuntu 14.10 32bit or 64bit ISO and create either a USB or CD/DVD

    Ubuntu 14.10 ISO http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

    CD/DVD: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-ubuntu

    USB: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-ubuntu

    Remember to backup any important data with either options, just to be on the safe side.
