14.04 has been discontinued in lieu of QuickBox now supporting systemd for easier and cleaner process/system management.
If your provider does not offer 15.10 or 16.04 (which are now standard) I would do 1 of 2 things.
- Seek out a more responsible provider. A sign of a negligent host is a host that doesn't afford the option of modern OS images.
- Perform an upgrade of your current install, which is pretty snappy really... and here's how:
Enter following command in terminal to install Core Update-Manager:
sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
Now enter following to open release file in text editor (If you are using non-LTS version then skip this step):
sudo nano /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
Now change lts to normal in opened text file (If you are using non-LTS version then skip this step):
Now enter following commands in terminal to start upgrade:
sudo apt-get update
or use this command to start upgrade:
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -d
Next would be to press enter throughout the process as in most cases you will want to keep your defaults in place. Again, I repeat... if your current host does not offer current images... skedaddle over to someone more competent.
