Linux Mint 14 Upgradation
1. Right click on desktop area and click ‘Open in Terminal‘ Or you may open through Menu >> Applications >> Accessories >> Terminal.
Open file in editor (Here I am using NANO editor) and from command prompt type command as.
$ sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Replace all ‘nadia‘ with ‘olivia‘ and ‘quantal‘ with ‘raring‘ to get required repositories. Below screen print shows you Before and After the changes.
Cautions: Please take ‘sources.list‘ file backup before doing any changes.
Update package database and distribution with below command from terminal.
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade $ sudo apt-get upgrade
Note: We urge to keep old configuration files to preserve as it may asked by APT Manager during packages upgradation process. You will be asked questions in between, read carefully and type ‘Yes‘ or ‘No‘. This may takes several minutes depending on system configuration and internet speed.
Reboot the system once packages are updated successfully. That’s it.
