Cloud Enterprise Server OS Update – Ubuntu 10.10 To 11.04

Many of the ISP’s for cloud computing offer the Ubuntu 10.10 operating system as their base.  The new release of Ubuntu 11.04 offers many feature upgrades and is more desirable than its predecessor.  It is logical to upgrade from Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04.
Initially we need to place our server in a position to be upgraded.  This is accomplished by issuing the following command.
[codesyntax lang=”text”]

sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

That command should be followed by the command listed below
[codesyntax lang=”text”]

sudo do-release-upgrade

The overall process will take a while depending on the speed of your processor.  I have upgraded in about 20 minutes of course I have processors with speed in excess of 3 gig.
