Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo) has finally worked its way back after its initial launch on April 22nd of 2021 due to an issue affecting users with an earlier version of EFI, which caused significant problems after upgrading with users unable to boot back into their system. Ubuntu has finally patched this, and now the option to upgrade safely is available, which I have personally done on several PC/OSX systems. Currently, Ubuntu 21.04 has two ways of upgrading which we will touch on below. In the following tutorial, you will learn how to upgrade Ubuntu 20.04 and 20.10 to the latest release 21.04.

The 5.14-rc2 kernel prepatch is out for
testing. Linus says:
At least in pure number of commits, this is the biggest rc2 we’ve
had during the 5.x cycle. Whether that is meaningful or not, who
knows – it might be just random timing effects, or it might
indicate that this release is not going to be one of those nice and
calm ones. We’ll just have to wait and see.
In total, 421 non-merge changesets were pulled into the mainline between
-rc1 and -rc2.

The long road toward quality is filled with diversions, false starts, and detours. The enemy of quality is waste, because waste is never desirable. No one pays anyone to deliver waste.
