Upgrading from 16.04 to 18.04?

I got a 7530 with Ubutnu 16.04 last week. I saw that Barton George mentioned in one of his posts that the 7530 will soon be offered with 18.04. Does/will Dell provide a way to update the systems to the latest version of the OS? I tried running 18.04 on the 7530 for a couple of days but ran into problems with external monitors and wifi after resuming, so I had to revert back to the recovery image and 16.04. It would be nice to get to 18.04 with Dell's customization's and not have to re-install everything.

I see now that the 7530 can be ordered with Ubuntu 18.04. I guess I got mine a couple of weeks too early. Is there a Dell image with 18.04 for the computer available for download?

There aren't any issues with the Generic 18.04.2 so far.

The Dell Precision 7530 and 7730 join the growing family of Dell systems that come preinstalled with Ubuntu including the XPS Developer Editions as well as the Precision line. Canonical have been part of Dell’s Project Sputnik since Day 1.

Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS (Bionic Beaver)
