Canonical won’t be nudging users of 14.04 LTS to upgrade to the interim release of 14.10.

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t upgrade your rock solid Trusty Tahr desktop to the (slightly underwhelming) Utopic Unicorn.

To get notified of new non-LTS Ubuntu releases you need to “opt-in” via the Software & Updates tool. This is straightforward.

  • Open ‘Software & Updates’
  • Select the ‘Updates’ tab
  • Locate section titled ‘Notify me of a new Ubuntu version’
  • In the dropdown menu switch from ‘For long-term support versions‘ to ‘For any new version’

After switching you’ll want to run a quick update.

Now you’re all set! The moment Canonical send out the “upgrade” prompt to desktop users (often delayed compared to general ISO availability) you’ll be able to upgrade to 14.10 through the Software Updater tool.

Big thanks to for this tutorial!
