As with most things ridiculous, there are about 20 different ways to do
that. But when that sort of lunacy hits three systems for friends/family
that I "support" and generates many hours of work amongst uncountable
swears of profanity... I tend to hold a grudge.

No change would be for the better.

Thank You for email and help.
Well if Xubuntu works anything like Debian you have to edit the file:
Is this the most easy way?
Find all of the instances of the old version you want to switch from and
change them to the new version you want to switch to, and save that.
Then do an aptitude update and after that aptitude full-upgrade
I don't use apt-get myself as it is depreciated in favor of aptitude
today in Debian. Apt-get still kind of works, but it is just old junk today.
Although there sometimes are other steps you need to take first. It
depends what you're upgrading from. Sometimes there are specific
packages you have to upgrade first, before you upgrade the whole system.
So you are best off following specific instructions that pertain to the
distribution, and version you are currently running.
Unfortunately with Xubuntu the upgrade page is a 404
So that is kind of junky.
You are upgrading BTW, not updating. It is a bit different.
Thank You for help.
