Sorry, but that's not possible.  You must do a full install.
Well you might want to check out this method of upgrading from Peppermint 9 to Peppermint 10, and then (if you want) you can upgrade Peppermint 10 to Peppermint 10 Respin using this method;)

Hi Slim.Fatz, I have upgraded to P10 and then to P10 Respin. Still the same problem. Apparently I switched to the HWE:

Code: [Select]
mefibo@mefibo-HP-Stream-Notebook-PC-11 ~ $ sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04
[sudo] wachtwoord voor mefibo:
Pakketlijsten worden ingelezen... Klaar
Boom van vereisten wordt opgebouwd       
De statusinformatie wordt gelezen... Klaar
linux-generic-hwe-18.04 is reeds de nieuwste versie (5.3.0.28.96).
xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04 is reeds de nieuwste versie (1:7.7+19ubuntu8~18.04.3).
0 opgewaardeerd, 0 nieuw geïnstalleerd, 0 te verwijderen en 0 niet opgewaardeerd.
mefibo@mefibo-HP-Stream-Notebook-PC-11 ~ $

And:

Code: [Select]
mefibo@mefibo-HP-Stream-Notebook-PC-11 ~ $ uname -a
Linux mefibo-HP-Stream-Notebook-PC-11 5.3.0-28-generic #30~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 17 06:14:09 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Now additionally, bluetooth does not work; I´ve had that problem before when I moved to the HWE.

So it seems, just a clean install is the only thing left to do.

Hi, thank you all for your help. I have performed a clean install of P10 and everything works fine.

Hi mefibo,

Unfortunately, that is sometimes the only solution.  ???

However, at least you fixed the issue !!  8) Have fun.  :)
