The operating 18.2 “Sonya” was released yesterday. Today all users of Mint Linux 18.1 "Sarah" can upgrade their systems as he says Clement Lefebvre in an official statement.

"It is now possible to upgrade Linux Mint 18 and 18.1 to version 18.2 If you were expecting it I would like to thank you for your patience: upgrading to 18.2 is relatively easy," says Clement Lefebvre.

To upgrade from Linux Mint 18.1 to Linux Mint 18.2, you will need to open the Update Manager application, and do στο κουμπί “Ανανέωση” ή “Refresh” για να ελέγξετε για νέες εκδόσεις των πακέτων mint-upgrade-info και mintupdate. Μετά την εγκατάσταση των δύο πακέτων, ανοίξτε το System Upgrade, go to the Edit menu and click “Upgrade to Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya” or “Upgrade to Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya.”

Follow the instructions on the screen.

Make sure you choose to replace all settings when prompted to keep or replace them. When the upgrade process is complete, you should restart your computer and you will be ready to use your new Linux Mint 18.2 operating system.

Note that the upgrade process will not update the kernel packages to the new version that Linux Mint 18.2 uses or replace the MDM (Mint Display Manager) with the display s LightDM used in the new version of Cinnamon.

Of course you can choose to install them via Update Manager. Run the following commands on your terminal to install the LightDM.
