So far every time I have uninstalled a new version of Ubuntu I have done a clean install of the system, and after that I have installed all programs all over again, but now I am thinking as I have a quite many programs installed currently on my Ubuntu version:

Is it "safe" to update my version of Ubuntu to the latest 13.10 or it is the best to use the 'old school' way and to install a fresh installation and then try to install and transfer all data and programs that I had in previous version? What is better option?

  • The short answer is you should always have backup.

  • I was more thinking whether my newly upgraded version will be buggy even if I manage to upgrade safely..

  • This is a lot like asking which is the one true religion - lots of strong opinion on each side. Personally, I've done both, both have worked well, but that backup . . . . yeah.
