How to upgrade from Ubuntu 16 to 17

VPS Customers running Ubuntu 16 can upgrade to their latest OS version, being Ubuntu 17.10 currently, with the following commands run as the root user:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

Then set ‘Prompt=normal’ in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and run (as root, preferably on your VPS Console (access to which we provide)):


And answer Y or let it proceed with defaults.

Finally, reboot into your new upgraded kernel and system.
