LLE10151 : How do I upgrade my version of Ubuntu, Kubuntu or debian

Symptom:

You want to upgrade your OS manually and have a debian like system

Cause:

none

Solution:

If a new version is released, on ubuntu and kubuntu the update manager will notify you via an upgrade notification pop-up bubble. To upgrade, click the Upgrade button, and follow the instructions. On Debian you need to manually upgrade. The first thing to find out is the codename for the next version of the OS (in case of ubuntu and kubuntu this is something like Warty, Hoary, Breezy, and Dapper. For debian it is something like sarge, lenny, sid, ...). Now open /etc/apt/sources.list, and replace the word e.g. "sarge" with the new codeword.

Now you can run the command:

sudo apt-get updates

This command updated your package list. To upgrade the system you use:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

You are asked if you wish to continue. Press Y, and then press Enter to continue. Your entire system is now upgraded. Please note that on debian you do not need to use the sudo in front of the commands, you just run these commands as root.
