Ubuntu 16.04 upgrade to 18.04 before Trellis provisioning

Gidday friends

My client can only get an Ubuntu 16.04 from their host company - is it straightforward for me to just run the upgrade commands to upgrade the release to 18.04? And then provision with Trellis 1.0.1?

I’ve read through this https://github.com/roots/trellis/pull/992

cheers :beers:

Trellis needs to be provisioned on a blank/fresh copy of 18.04 — no clue what you’d run into/be risking if you attempted to provision an existing 16.04 server

Cheers Ben, so does a fresh/blank 16.04 that I then update to 18.04 before attempting the Trellis provisioning risk failure?

I can always go into the repo and use an older version of Trellis.

I would always start with the version of Ubuntu that your version of Trellis is designed for. Don’t upgrade an existing droplet.

Thanks. By some miracle it turned out the server was able to come with a fresh 18.04 after all - so this will remain a mystery.
