Upgrade Your Ubuntu GNOME


Read this first: Should I Upgrade?

Back Up

Back up your data first. Follow this tutorial for backing up data, or just download Clonezilla and create an image of your hard drive/system partition.


If you were using the gnome3-team/gnome3-staging PPA, run the following before upgrading:

sudo ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging
sudo ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt install ubuntu-gnome-desktop^

The included GUI update manager will offer you the latest release of Ubuntu GNOME. Access this via the terminal:

update-manager -c

Alternatively, run the following command:

sudo do-release-upgrade
