    Default Ubuntu 8.04 -> sudo apt-get upgrade ?

    Shall I update my entire system with:

    sudo apt-get upgrade
    I have not done this before because I'm afraid the upgrade will conflict in some manner with my Zimbra:

    Release 5.0.11_GA_2695.UBUNTU8_64 UBUNTU8_64 FOSS edition

    That's a decision for you to make, why do you feel the need to upgrade?

    Then make sure you take a full backup of your /opt/zimbra directory first, in case you have any problems.

    I've been running Zimbra on Ubuntu for some time, and I haven't had a problem with APT upgrades. In fact my system is current as of this weekend because I did an APT upgrade this weekend prior to my 5.0.18 upgrade. I've never had an issue, but should always make sure you have a backup prior to any major upgrade.

    I tend to hold off on upgrading 'apt-get update && apt-get upgrade' until its time for a Zimbra release upgrade. If the box is going to be down anyway you might as well do some maintenance and if there is a kernel update you have to reboot.

    If you are using the Server edition, and you should be, the applications and libraries that are updated automatically are pretty small in number, and usually only security updates. The kernel is not updated unless something major has occurred since the last time you upgraded, with the exception of security updates.
    Because we all can't be geniuses, I'll go first.

    You should run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade regularly. The upgrades contains security fixes only. They shouldn't break functionality - and if they do, there's a good reason.

    Though it is unlikely, shit do happen and you have two options:

    1. Downgrade and pin the package. Stay with an unsecure system until a patch from zimbra is available.

    or

    2. If you paid for zimbra and you are using a supported platform, ask zimbra support to fix the issue right away.
