Why it doesn't update ?

Post by Fabio7891 »

Hi everybody !

On another laptop I have noticed it's stuck on Linux Mint 18.3

I have checked the Update Manager many times to see if appers the item "Upgrade to Mint 19.1" and writing on the terminal: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get updgrade but nothing.

What can I do about it ?
I use Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon Tessa - 64 bit

Have a read here. Mint version upgrades differ in method between point upgrades and major version upgrades.

To save you a few clicks the official instructions for the 18.3 to 19 upgrade path are here https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2416
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.
