How to Upgrade from Ubuntu 14.10 server to Ubuntu 15.04 Server



To upgrade from Ubuntu 14.10 server to Ubuntu 15.04 server, do the following steps.
Install the update-manager-core package if it is not already installed:
sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
Edit the file /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades,
sudo nano /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
and set Prompt=normal or Prompt=lts as shown below.
# Default behavior for the release upgrader.

[DEFAULT]
# Default prompting behavior, valid options:
#
#  never  - Never check for a new release.
#  normal - Check to see if a new release is available.  If more than one new
#           release is found, the release upgrader will attempt to upgrade to
#           the release that immediately succeeds the currently-running
#           release.
#  lts    - Check to see if a new LTS release is available.  The upgrader
#           will attempt to upgrade to the first LTS release available after
#           the currently-running one.  Note that this option should not be
#           used if the currently-running release is not itself an LTS
#           release, since in that case the upgrader won't be able to
#           determine if a newer release is available.
Prompt=normal

Normal – Check to see if a new release is available. If more than one new release is found, the release upgrader will attempt to upgrade to the release that immediately succeeds the currently-running release.
LTS – Check to see if a new LTS release is available. The upgrader will attempt to upgrade to the first LTS release available after the currently-running one. Note that this option should not be used if the currently-running release is not itself an LTS release, since in that case the upgrader won’t be able to determine if a newer release is available.
As you may know, Ubuntu 15.04 is not a LTS version. So, I entered normal.
Now, it is time to upgrade your server system to latest version using the following command:
sudo do-release-upgrade -d

Follow the on-screen instructions. Reboot the server.
