How can I switch the Linux distribution image on my droplet?

April 18, 2014 1.4k views
I saw the announcement that Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is now available for spinning up new droplets. Currently, my droplet is running on Ubuntu 13.10 x32, and I wanted to "upgrade" to Ubuntu 14.04. Is there an easy way to change the Linux distro running on my droplet, or do I have to create a new droplet and setup everything from scratch? Thanks, Hristo

You can upgrade your droplet by running the do-release-upgrade command. If you get an error saying that it's not found, run the following command and try again:

sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
