Can unattended-upgrades upgrade from Ubuntu 16 to 17 (major upgrade)?

I assume the current term is "major upgrade" (just as you would go from WordPress 3.x.x to 4.x.x or Drupal 7.x.x to 8.x.x).


The change you're inquiring about - upgrade from Ubuntu 16 to 17 - is a release upgrade.

unattended-upgrades does not upgrade the release, it install updates within the same release only.
