ltsupgrade <reply> Regular upgrades from the last but one LTS release to the latest LTS release, $curLTSNum "$curLTSLong", are enabled days or weeks after $curLTSNum.1 is released. This delay helps to ensure that any lingering issues are resolved before people upgrade production systems. If you'd prefer to upgrade now, use sudo do-release-upgrade -d Added by Pici
