Upgrading Your Linux Operating System
To back up your operating system before upgrading, we recommend creating a snapshot of the virtual machine and a mpctl backup. We also recommend backing up the complete Meisterplan installation directory, because it contains the server configuration.
Next, upgrade the operating system by using the appropriate tools of your distribution. For example, you can find upgrade instructions for Ubuntu here. Please make sure you only upgrade to one of the supported and tested version listed above.
