Hey -devel,

The Ubuntu QA Team brought back to the archive a tool that allows
automated upgrade tests of Ubuntu releases: that's the
auto-upgrade-testing package, available for Kinetic users.

The tool leverages the autopkgtest tooling to setup a VM running a given
Ubuntu release, upgrades it via do-release-upgrade, and tests that the
results match some expected conditions.

I published a Discourse post on how to use the tool:


and I'll follow up with a second post on how to write upgrade profiles.
Feedback is welcome on both the tool and the post.

Happy testing!
