A false dichotomy. You have numerous choices if you wish to stay with
Ubuntu and its derivatives:

* Don't upgrade
* Install a parallel desktop environment, e.g., kubuntu-desktop, and
evaluate its workflow with your current one
* Pin (apt->dpkg) your desktop environment and perform an upgrade
* Upgrade only your development tools

Granted, some of those options require more intervention.
