How to upgrade Ubuntu 20.04 to Ubuntu 22.04

Published: Last Updated on

In using any operating system, we should regularly upgrade to a new version, not necessarily the latest version, but not use too old versions because this is less secure and safe for our data.

Similar to the Ubuntu operating system, Ubuntu has been released for a long time, so we need to upgrade Ubuntu 20.04 to Ubuntu 22.04 if we want to use it in the long run.

Execution conditions:

  • Use the root user or sudo privileges
  • OS is running 20.04

Note: To avoid unexpected risks, you should proactively back up important data before performing system upgrades or changes.

Step 1: Check the Ubuntu version

In this step, we will use the following command:

AZDIGI Tutorial
root@chamcong:~# uname -r

root@chamcong:~# cat /etc/lsb-release

Step 2: Install all updates of installed packages

We continue to use the following two commands to install all the updates of the installed packages:

AZDIGI Tutorial
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y
apt dist-upgrade

Remove unnecessary packages from the system:

AZDIGI Tutorial
apt autoremove

Then reboot the server to apply the changes:

Step 3: Upgrade Ubuntu 20.04 to Ubuntu 22.04

I will use the update-manager-core package to upgrade the system to the latest release version.

AZDIGI Tutorial
apt install update-manager-core

With the package downloaded successfully, I will run the Ubuntu upgrade utility. And to check for available updates without applying them, you can run the following command:

AZDIGI Tutorial
do-release-upgrade --check-dist-upgrade-only

Checking for a new Ubuntu release
There is no development version of an LTS available.
To upgrade to the latest non-LTS development release
set Prompt=normal in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades.

Next, run the following command to start the upgrade process:

AZDIGI Tutorial
do-release-upgrade -d

If you want to upgrade with third-party mirrors and repositories add the --allow-third-party option to the command:

AZDIGI Tutorial
do-release-upgrade -d --allow-third-party

If asked and asked to enter Y/N (Yes/No), select Y/Yes to agree to install and upgrade.

Select Y/Yes when asked and the update will take a long time. And during the upgrade, don’t close the SSH window until the process is complete.

A message appears with Postfix configuration for mail delivery. If you want to configure, select No configuration => Next.

When you receive the message System upgrade is complete, ask if you want to restart the server. Please select Y to restart the server.

After rebooting the server, SSH back into the server and check with thecat /etc/lsb-release command. If the system shows the message below, you have completed the upgrade.
