Upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10 using Command Line

Here is a very simple script to update from Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10. I have just launched a few new servers and this was the first thing I had to do on all of them, so I thought I'd share.

apt-get update
apt-get autoclean

Some of the above code might not be needed on a fresh install, but I always like to make sure the packages are all up to date before upgrading to a new distribution. This will work on both Desktop and Server editions of Ubuntu 11. Also, remember to use sudo if you're not logged in as root.

If you have any questions about this post, or anything else, you can get in touch on Twitter or browse my code on Github.
