After some considerations I decided that today was the day that I upgraded my Intel NUC with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS server (Bionic Beaver). It took 15 minutes and no problems during the upgrade, yay. After reading some articles on the big Internet I was recommended the following approach:
At some point you are asked if you want the upgrade to remove obsolete packages. Please say no to that, as it can cause you some problems later on, this is what I heard. But run the apt autoremove command instead after the upgrade. The Ubuntu 18.04 contains the following new features:
- Python 3.6.5 (from 3.5.1)
- Ruby 2.5 (from 2.3)
- Go 1.10 (from 1.6)
- PHP 7.2 (from 7.0)
- Node.js 8.10 (from 4.2.6)
Let us see how the system runs for the next few days. My PostgreSQL version is now 10 and both my JIRA and Confluence use this is as the primary datastore. But all is good, so far.
