Thanks. When I'm feeling brave, I'll give it a try. The risk is if it
goes wrong, there is no-one local who could fix the system and my mother
would be without her computer until I can make the 300 mile drive!

I wonder if there is an approach whereby I clone the root logical volume
and somehow upgrade the clone (without booting into it, that is). That
way the system should always at least reboot into the original system?
