Upgrading Lubuntu 15.10 to 16.04

As you can see from the screenshot, you won’t be able to upgrade from 15.10 if you use the 16.04 ISO.

Instead, you’ll be asked to re-install the OS if you have a dual-boot or single-boot like shown above.

How to Setup Time Syncronization with Lubuntu

First, you’ll want to check to see if you are running NTPd [Network Time Protocol Daemon]

timedatectl status

Check the following lines:
Time zone: America/Los_Angeles (PDT, -0700)
Network time on: yes
NTP synchronized: yes
RTC in local TZ: yes

If you don’t have such setup, you should run the following command:

sudo apt install ntp

Configuration

Edit /etc/ntp.conf to add/remove server lines. By default these servers are configured:

# Use servers from the NTP Pool Project. Approved by Ubuntu Technical Board
# on 2011-02-08 (LP: #104525). See http://www.pool.ntp.org/join.html for
# more information.

server 0.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org

server 1.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org

server 2.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org

server 3.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org

After changing the config file you have to reload the ntpd:

sudo systemctl reload ntp.service

Then re-run the first command in this post and you should be now setup.

Update to re-use Ubuntu sources.list

***Lubuntu 15.10.info Exclusive***

#deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ wily-updates universe multiverse main$
#deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ wily-security universe multiverse main $
#deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ wily-updates restricted multiverse main $
