Ubuntu’s Update Manager should prompt you that a new distribution upgrade is available. If not, just check if Ubuntu is configured to look for Long Term Support (LTS) releases only. To do this, Click on System -> Admininstration -> Update Manager. Next, click on Settings and change the “Show distribution releases” from “Long Term Support Releases only” to “Normal Releases”

Hit close, and start Update Manager again, click on check and it should prompt you to update to the newer version

From the command line,

sudo do-release-upgrade
