There is no way to update from an elementary version to another one. You have to clean install every time.

Hopefully in the next version they will add the option to update.

Update from Loki to Juno stable?

I did that, basically. Many repositories afterwards showed arror when updating, and I had to fix them, but I have now what can be very similar to a freshly installed Juno. Your mileage can vary.
