I cannot find this?
Where is the button in the gui?
I am using xfce.

Is this the way to update from Pangolin to Quantal.
Is there a problem because I used a DVD Ocelot and during install it was
changed to Pangolin.
I think it was during August 2012.
It may not. Precise was an LTS release and typically, the defaults
for update-manager are to only show LTS updates when available, so
Spohie would only see an update notice for 14.04. To fix that:
Sorry I could not understand this.
Edit the file /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and change this line:
Then run update-manager and it should discover the Quantal update and
provide the option.
I could not understand.
Did You describe two ways to update Linux.
And should I write in terminal:
Or do I have to do more?
I prefer the terminal
a because I can see a list of mistakes
b I can write it in a Txt-file and find it again in April 2013,because
then there is the next update.
I wish You a relaxed Sunday.

Thank You for email and help.
Well if Xubuntu works anything like Debian you have to edit the file:
Is this the most easy way?
Find all of the instances of the old version you want to switch from and
change them to the new version you want to switch to, and save that.
Then do an aptitude update and after that aptitude full-upgrade
I don't use apt-get myself as it is depreciated in favor of aptitude
today in Debian. Apt-get still kind of works, but it is just old junk today.
Although there sometimes are other steps you need to take first. It
depends what you're upgrading from. Sometimes there are specific
packages you have to upgrade first, before you upgrade the whole system.
So you are best off following specific instructions that pertain to the
distribution, and version you are currently running.
Unfortunately with Xubuntu the upgrade page is a 404
So that is kind of junky.
You are upgrading BTW, not updating. It is a bit different.
Thank You for help.
