Freya stable released toady and I have installed Freya beta 2. I want to update to stable so tried using sudo apt-get dist-upgradebut it shows nothing. Do I have to make a clean install or is a update possible?

  • Did you run apt-get update first? What is the content of /etc/apt/sources.list? – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Apr 11 '15 at 22:02
  • yes I did run both apt-get update and upgrade. – Sanjay Karki Apr 12 '15 at 3:03

First install the package that provides add-apt-repository if it's not already installed:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

Next, remove elementary beta PPA and replaced it with stable.

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/stable
sudo apt-get update

Now remove elementary beta packages

sudo apt-get remove elementary-os-prerelease 

Update Linux kernel to 3.16 similar to stable release.

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-lts-utopic libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic libegl1-mesa-drivers-lts-utopic

Upgrade the system and restart

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
