Sofware Updater Asking to update to 18.04LTS, Safe to do so?

Unread post by jiffysound » Thu Sep 13, 2018 9:56 am

Every time I run software updater it asks if I want to upgrade my 16.04 LTS install to 18.04 LTS, is this safe to do? I am using a eMMC with a pre-installed Ubuntu Mate 16.04LTS and I don't have the proper MicroSD eMMC Reader ( REV0 2 20130402 ) to a SanDisk microSD Adapter, so unfortunately I can't install a new image to a black eMMC :( Also since we are on the topic of MicroSD eMMC reader, is there a compatible MicroSD Adapter which works with the eMMC reader?

All indications show that an upgrade will brick your system for some reason.

for emmc readers.

We bought a few of these on a whim and they have worked out quite well. Cheap and tiny, so we just leave them hooked up to the eMMC readers.
