The beta version of ubuntu 10.10 (The Maverick Meerkat Beta) was released yesterday by Ubuntu developers. if you want to download it, use this link.

In this tutorial, we will see how you can easily upgrade from your current Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) to Ubuntu 10.10 Beta. Since Ubuntu 10.10 is still a beta, we don't recommend installing it on a machine intended for any type of business.

Get Started

1. Press ALT + F2 and type the following command:

update-manager -d

Click Run to open the Update Manager window.

2. At the top of the window, you will see a notification saying that "New Ubuntu release '10.10' is available". Click the Upgrade button.

3. A welcome window pops-up, click Upgrade.

Next follow the rest of the upgrade wizard. You must provide your root password if prompted.

4. Another window will pop-up, click Start Upgrade.

5. Wait now until the upgrading process comes to an end, then reboot your computer. Ubuntu 10.10 Beta is now installed and ready for use. Enjoy!
