Installing Ubuntu Artful Aardvark

Today after installing the latest Ubuntu Mate 17.04 Zesty Zepus on my laptop I tried upgrading it to the development branch with the following command:

do-release-upgrade -d

A few bugs on the way:

Processing triggers for menu (2.1.47ubuntu1) …
Processing triggers for libvlc-bin:amd64 (2.2.5-4) …
Processing triggers for shim-signed (1.29+0.9+1474479173.6c180c6-1ubuntu1) …
find: ‘/var/lib/dkms’: No such file or directory
No DKMS packages installed: not changing Secure Boot validation state.

Searching for obsolete software
Reading package lists… Done

I fixed this error with the following command:

    •    sudo apt-get install dkms

  • The result was pretty impressive, the next ubuntu release 17.10 will be called Ubuntu Artful Aardvark (development branch)

Here you can see it’s using only 776mb right after boot.

Pretty cool to use this system I should say! Now let’s try to add some packages for bioinformatics…
