Upgrading from Ubuntu 9.04
Among other things, I’ve let minimus go far too long without upgrades. It’s still running Ubuntu 9.04, which, while working, is old enough to be unsupported, especially since it’s not a long-term-service (LTS) release.
Upgrading from an unsupported release is, unfortunately, not officially supported, but some intrepid souls have figured out how to make it work anyway. Using answers from this thread on AskUbuntu, I have been able to get the process started. Of course, it remains to be determined how this will finish.
Sharks or glory lay ahead.
