Ubuntu server updating
I recently downloaded Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Server on my Windows 10 test machine running VMware Workstation 14 Pro so I can do some testing. and on the server side, Apache2, PHP and other server software are being upgraded.. If you’re testing Ubuntu 18.04 LTS server, this is how one renames or changes the server hostname. It’s how the server gets identified on the network.
By far the big changes coming will be noticeable on the desktop and less so on the servers. To change your server name, follow the steps below: There are two files that must be edited to successfully change Ubuntu computer name. They are: Save the file and exit and continue below…
The location of update pages is specified in /etc/apt/(repositories).
You need NOT to make any changes to this file until and unless you need extra repositories for your setup.

Just in case you don’t aware, the current long-term support (LTS) edition Ubuntu 16.04 is supported until April 2021 and the current normal edition Ubuntu 17.10 is supported until July 2018.
There are no offline upgrade options for Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Server.
