In order to check Ubuntu version, you can get through a few easy instructions:

1: Open Terminal on your system by pressing CTRL+ALT+T key combination.

2: If you want to check version of a remote Ubuntu server, login to server using SSH

3: Now, you can execute any of these commands to find out the current Ubuntu version you are using on your system.

cat /etc/os-release
lsb_release -a

4: To check Linux Kernel version, you can use the following command:

uname -r

Hope this will help you.
