Sorry, but I was around during the lost cycle of LTS to LTS and it was a 
bumpy ride FOR SOME, as I mentioned. Not to mention that there was a 
complete update to the filesystem that a clean install would handle 
where an update won't. Grub was also upgraded between the LTS's, and a 
clean install would have incorporated it. Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt??
Sometimes not a bad thing... if it leads to ~discernment~.

So I would advise a newbie to watch and read about other's attempts 
first, to see if it blew up and how. Someone that has been around awhile 
just might survive the journey better and easier than someone brand new.

Since no one has tried yet, you cannot say that it will work like a cool 
breeze or end in tears. The adage "Fools rush in, where angels fear to 
tread" comes to mind. :) Ric

Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
