I want to use elementary OS 6 but I am using elementary OS 5 in my VM on Windows. What terminal commands do I need to type?
As @RCKT mentioned in his answer there is an upgrade from 5 to 6 can't be done by using some like
However, it is a good practice to separate
/home and in my opinion
/opt (which I use a lot for custom software) in separated partitions. By the way it's always a good idea to do backups from time to time and maybe hold onto a reinstall script which installs all the software packages back on your device after installations.
This all isn't either intuitive nor user friendly and requires some technical knowledge to some extend.
Luckily it came to my attention that the devs are working on a upgrade mechanic. The progress can be followed on Github. However, the upgrade mechanism most likely will be released for OS 6 or OS 7.
