Can I skip over releases?
Upgrade manager is talking about doing upgrade 11.10
Can (and should) I go straight to 12.04 ? If so how (online?) ?
Yup, I've backed up my data ! :)
I've looked at a lot of similar questions about 10 and 11 upgrades but none of them are quite the same as my question using the specific versions I've shown.
This question: How can I upgrade from 11.04 to 12.04? seems to iondicate that I'll need to do the upgrade to 11.10 first.
This: Can I skip over releases when upgrading? also seems to prefer that.
btw this is one of three systems. I tend to upgrade one system and the other two I do fresh installs as that's certainly a good option every year or two and gives great life span to older machines.
