My first Ubuntu upgrade that did not break

Big Grin  My first Ubuntu upgrade that did not break
For the first time in history I was able to upgrade to the latest version of Ubuntu Linux without the upgrade wrecking my computer!

I was running Xubuntu 13.04

Now I'm running Xubuntu 14.04 long-term service release.

In the past, clicking the "upgrade button" always (and I mean every time) wadded up my computer so badly I had to wipe the drive and reinstall the OS.

I'm pleasantly surprised. Blush

I've been able to upgrade Mint from 14 to 15 then 16 without issues. I always search the intertubes for possible gotchas before doing it, and follow any instructions outside the normal path. Usually it involves the shell as opposed to the GUI upgrade tool.

Yours is the correct way to do it.

I always just crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. Smile
