I have an Orangepi+2e device with Armbian OS.

How can I check Armbian version?
I tried with these commands, but can not found Armbian type.

$ sudo lsb_release -a


No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
Release:    16.04
Codename:   xenial


$ sudo uname -r

    sudo apt-get install lsb-core – Marco Bonelli Nov 14 '18 at 22:28

To check the armbian version look at the contents of the version file :

cat /etc/armbian-release

With borrowing from @MarcoBonelli comment, I found that this question is broader, and it is not a particular issue with ArmbianOS. So if whenever in the Linux based OS there wasn't lsb_release command you could install it using the following command:

apt-get install lsb-core

Then check it out:

lsb_release -a
