XPS 9343 upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04

This question is not answered

I have an XPS 13 9343 with the shipped 14.04 and bios A04. I switched the Broadcom card for an Intel 7265.

Everything is working fine and I'd like to keep it that way but I have to upgrade cause I'm using this laptop to develop apps that are deployed on a server that has just been upgraded to 16.04.

Anybody can report a successful upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04?

  • I have the 2014 model XPS 13 (9333). It came with Ubuntu 12.04.  I first tried the auto-upgrade to 14.04 and it crashed.

    After that, I have done clean installs to 14.04, 15.04, 15.10, and 16.04.  The clean install has always worked without a hitch.  Just be sure to backup first, and to verify your backup.  :)

  • Thanks for the answer. A clean install has been reported as working by several people.

    I'd realy rather upgrade if possible. I don't care about the data but reinstalling/reconfiguring the whole dev environment takes aleways so much time.

    Anyone has tried to upgrade a 9343 from 14.04 to 16.04?
