  • These labs are developed and tested on the LTS versions of Ubuntu. Since you have upgraded to 18.04 (the minimum tested for this course) there should be few issues with proceeding, given that the packages should all be present.

    That being said, we do recommend a VM or other disposable environment to perform the labs in.
