I'm going to use Adept Manager on my Kubuntu systems later today
(when I'm not in the middle of working :^) ), but Ubuntu.com mentioned this
as the command-line route ('recommended' for servers):

  1. Install update-manager-core:
  sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

  2. Launch the upgrade tool:
  sudo do-release-upgrade

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

That's from:


Not 100% sure if it'll apply to your situation, or if it's a Good Idea for
desktops (not sure why it wouldn't be), but there you have it.

Good luck!
