Upgrading to pre-release failure
#1
Hi,

I just upgraded from 0.6.15 to 0.6.22 of xenial minimal install. Now i can't ssh to it.  When I edit the sources file and ran a apt-get update and apt-get upgrade it said 2 had been held back, which were the new pre-release sources. So I ran an apt-get install instead which seemed to work, but when i did a restart, i can't access it but can ping the IP.  Can anyone give some help...

I also have found it impossible with my near limited linux experience to set a static ip address using standard tips from ubuntu forums.  Not sure where i'm going wrong...

EDIT

Sorry, my bad, it had changed IP address on me. Now working fine. Not sure why the sudo apt-get upgrade didn't work though.

What tutorials did you use to set a static IP address and from which forums? I'd also like to find the exact steps how to edit the sources file.

All depends on which Linux build you choose, whether you'll use the CLI or GUI.

EDIT: I ended up using my router to reserve the IP address rather than using static as I found that the static ip address wouldn't stick after a restart.
