How to upgrade your Ubuntu 16.04 server from the default Ubuntu 16 with network administrator tools
Posted On June 30, 2021
By now you’re probably familiar with how to upgrade an Ubuntu 16 desktop.
You’ll have to choose a different theme, and install an entirely new package manager.
It may seem like an elaborate task, but there are a few simple things you can do to get your computer up and running again.
In this article, we’ll look at how to do that.
This article assumes that you already have an Ubuntu machine running 16.10, which is the most recent version of Ubuntu available to you.
If you’re unsure about what to do, we recommend reading our guide to upgrading Ubuntu 16 in general.
If your computer isn’t running Ubuntu 16, you can download Ubuntu 16 for Windows and Linux, or install it on your desktop.
In the following guide, we will be using Ubuntu 16 as our example system, and using Ubuntu’s network administrator package manager to upgrade it.
For those of you using the same Ubuntu 16 machine, you might want to check out our guide on how to install the network administrator packages that are available on the 16.x series of Ubuntu.
The steps in this guide are designed to be simple enough for you to do them in a few minutes.
You can find out how to perform the upgrades on the Ubuntu server itself.
If for some reason you have trouble with this process, please visit our troubleshooting section.
Before you can upgrade your system, you’ll need to have a system configuration file in the same directory as the server.
To create a new file, follow these steps: Open a terminal window and type: sudo mkdir /etc/network/interfaces Add the following line to the end of /etc or /etc.d/rc.local file: iface lo inet loopback Add the line below it: ifconfig eth0 inet static address 192.168.0.0/24 Add the lines below it to /etc to add the interfaces you want to use.
The default network is eth0.
You should now be able to reboot the server into the Ubuntu 16 server environment.
Now you can open a command prompt, and type the following command to update the server’s network configuration: sudo apt-get update Now you should see a message like this: The following packages have been installed: network-manager network-management network-policy network-tools network-status network-upgrade This is normal.
The next step is to configure your Ubuntu network interface settings.
To do that, type: ipconfig This will show you the list of available network interfaces and how many they have, and how to configure them.
To add a new network interface, type the command below: ipadd interface new Add a new interface to your network.
To check how many interfaces there are, type in the command: netstat The next command shows you the current status of all the interfaces on your network: netgraph The next two commands show you which interfaces are available and what they do.
The last command shows the status of the interfaces that have the most active traffic on them.
You will see something like this in the terminal: The total number of interfaces on the network is: 22.214.171.124 255.255.255
