Support & Help request : raspberry pi 3 b+


#1

Hi all,

I bought raspberry pi 3 b+ and installed Ubuntu mate 16.04.02. But os is not booting in Rpi 3B+. Could you please tell me when working version of Ubuntu mate for Rpi 3B+ will be available.

Regards,
Jai

18.04 which will support the pi 3 b + is planned to be released around Christmas as far as I know


#3

So I guess that NOW, since it is past Christmas, it should be released as you said, however its not? How come?


#4

So until then, what would be the way to get it on pi 3 b+?

I have had good luck with installing 16.04 on my Pi 3B+ (takes a little tweaking - there are many posts how to do this) and then executing sudo do-release-upgrade from the 16.04 installation. Be aware that this will take CONSIDERABLE time - an hour or more.
