 +I run Lubuntu on [[..:​hardware:​acer#​Extensa 5210|an old laptop]] I have, that I mostly use for watching films with Kodi. I'm not very used to Debian/​Ubuntu flavours, so I'm making lots of notes.
 +=====Useful Commands=====
 +  * ''​lsb_release -a''​ check distro release version
 +When there'​s a new proper version of the distro things get a little trickier sometimes, especially if you haven'​t updated in ages.
 +I ran into a problem where it wouldn'​t update from 15.10 to 17.10 becaues for some reason it was set to only upgrade to LTS releases (fine), but I was somehow on a non-LTS! This was easy enough to change in ''/​etc/​update-manager/​release-upgrades''​
 +  * Getting ready / setting the table:
 +    - ''​sudo apt-get update''​ then
 +    - ''​sudo apt-get upgrade''​ then
 +    - ''​sudo apt-get dist-upgrade''​ to get your current version up-t%%o-%%date.
 +    - ''​sudo apt-get autoremove''​ and
 +    - ''​sudo apt-get clean''​ to clean up a bit.
 +    - ''​sudo apt-get install update-manager-core''​ to make sure update mechanism is up-t%%o-%%date.
 +  * Upgrade:
 +    - ''​sudo d%%o-%%release-upgrade''​
 +Adding these lines to ''/​etc/​apt/​sources.list''​ auto picks the closest mirrors when updating.
 +deb mirror://​​mirrors.txt precise main restricted universe multiverse
 +deb mirror://​​mirrors.txt precise-updates main restricted universe multiverse
 +deb mirror://​​mirrors.txt precise-backports main restricted universe multiverse
 +deb mirror://​​mirrors.txt precise-security main restricted universe multiverse
