HOWTO : Upgrade Ubuntu 16.04.3 to Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.3

Since Ubuntu Unity is no longer supported after Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu released Gnome 3 version for Ubuntu 16.04.3. We can upgrade it without pain.

sudo apt install ubuntu-gnome-desktop^

Select "gdm3" when prompted.

sudo apt remove unity lightdm ubuntu-desktop

sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt autoclean
sudo do-release-upgrade

Now, you can force to reboot the box by long pressing the shutdown button.

That's all! See you.

Update on August 19,2017 :

After the upgrade to Firefox 55.0.2, Firefox may not working properly on decimal place in your language. It shows 100,10 instead of 100.10 in my case even it is in English. This link will show you how to change it when necessary. I select "en-US" at "general.useragent.locale" in my case.
