Upgrading SQL Server 2017 on Ubuntu Linux to RTM in 4 steps


SQL Server 2017 RTM is released and available on Windows, Linux and Docker, in this article, we will see the steps for upgrading SQL Server 2017 CTM Release on Ubuntu to RTM Version

Step 1: Connect to Ubuntu Server using your favorite Shell, I use Bash Shell on Windows, since its built-in Windows 10 now

Step 2: Remove old repository

sudo add-apt-repository "$(curl https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/16.04/mssql-server-2017-gdr.list)"

Step 3: Add new repository

sudo add-apt-repository "$(curl https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/16.04/mssql-server-2017.list)"

Step 4: Upgrade SQL Server 

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install mssql-server

If you are using Availability groups in Linux, Please upgrade the primary machine first and then secondary replica

Have fun with SQL Server 2017
