Home Learn Linux Linux Answers Distributions How would I update my Ubuntu Linux version 8.04?
  • Accepted Answer

    You can not upgrade your OS through another download: you have to create another live disk and install from that. The Ubuntu website will give you great instructions for the live disk if you need it.

  • Is it a new Dell Laptop with old release of Ubuntu!! If it is new one, better contact to vendor where from u purchased this and ask them for help.

    2nd way,(if it is an old laptop) the easiest way is to back up ur all personal data and do a clean install. If u tried with Update Manager, it may be lead to a mess.
