    Is there a way to upgrade NOOBS preloaded in SD Card using Raspberry Pi 3B without flashing SD Card?


      I received the new Raspberry Pi 3B+ as a gift and I bought a Raspberry Pi 3B with NOOBS preloaded SD Card in this link - http://in.element14.com/jsp/search/productdetail.jsp?sku=2525227&CMP=i-55c5-00001621. Both these were through Element14.


      Now what I am trying to do is use the NOOBS preloaded SD Card for 3B+. But that is not working and it makes 3B+ stuck up with the first rainbow colour background page at boot up. I read through articles and found the issue is because of the older version of NOOBS which would not be compatible to support the upgrades in 3B+. The article with the resolution is found here - https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=212452. It says to run the below update commands using 3B.


      sudo apt-get update


      sudo apt-get dist-upgrade


      When I tried I got stuck with an error in the second update process at 67%. Does anybody have a solution for this issue? Do let me know in the comments. Meanwhile I will continue to explore the possibilities.
