Waiting for Peppermint OS 11 - how to upgrade your OS

Heey guys!

Here we are again... After we had seen many people asking the question on forums, social networks, we decided to give our answer to it...

We hope our answer is in "plain English" and average users will understand it.

Any path to upgrade from our 18.04 core to 20.04 would be purely the decision of the user and unofficial.

I caution anyone reading. Once someone chooses to upgrade their core they're effectively re-spining Peppermint.

This is a fun exercise and certainly in the spirit of FOSS but completely unofficial and we wouldn't be able to support any problems that may result.

Furthermore we are working on Peppermint 11 and although we can't offer a release date beyond "when it's ready" it is in the works.

Seriousness aside, we can now have a Ship of Theseus discussion in the thread. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus

I never do it that way. I always install the latest release. I treid to upgrade Peppermint 10 Respin from Bionic Beaver to Focal Fossa the Debian way and for me it didn't work that well. It upgraded to Focal Fossa, but Peppermint PPA was gone, icons were gone in Nemo, only O's instead of for instance the house icon for Home.

Once Peppermint, always Peppermint.
