Symptom

You would like to use the normal release instead of the Long Term Support version.

Cause

This release has more experimental software in it.

Solution

To change the Long Term Support version to a normal release version, you need to change the file /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
Here you find the promt = LTS line and change it to promt = normal.

You can restart your system and do an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade afterwards. Your system will migrate to a normal release.
