In the newer version of Elementary OS can you do: do-release upgrade from the terminal like in Ubuntu or some similiar command to upgrade to a newer version of Elementary OS?

Elementary OS 6 has to be installed as a fresh install. No upgrade option from eOS 5 that I am aware of.

  • Are they working on a Path like in Ubuntu?
