Dear Community members,

If you are already using Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (With Long-term Support) you can
still benefit from its long term support cycle whereas Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft
will only be supported for the next 18 months so for companies and offices
running 6.06 they can continue using it otherwise you can also download
6.10.

Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft has got new translations and tons of new features
including a quick loading Gnome interface, new startup screen, rounded
corner window screens, Firefox 2, Gaim 2.0, built in Wiki Editing features,
thumb image viewers and much more!

To upgrade from Ubuntu 6.06 LTS to Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft, kindly follow the
steps given below:

Upgrade from 6.06 LTS
If you want to upgrade from 6.06 LTS to 6.10, run the following command
(either via ALT-F2 or a terminal): 

gksu "update-manager -c"
The "-c" switch instructs Update Manager to look for upgrades at all. By
default the 6.06 LTS release will not offer that automatically because of
its long support cycle and high stability. 

If you have a working network connection, it should then inform you about a
new release and offer to upgrade your system. 

Upgrades with apt-get
If the upgrade is performed on a system without update-manager (e.g. on a
server). The upgrade must be done in two steps. The first run of apt-get
dist-upgrade will upgrade everything except for upstart. After this a second
apt-get dist-upgrade will finish the upgrade.
