migrating to upgraded distro from a snapshot?
I’d like to upgrade my droplet from Ubuntu 16 to Ubuntu 18 and I have a snapshot of my current Ubuntu 16 droplet.
Is it possible to create an Ubuntu 18 droplet based on the snapshot of my current Ubuntu 16 system?
This upgrade guide warns us to actually migrate to an entirely new server rather than upgrade it in-place. Taking that advise, I’m brought to another migration guide. However this guide is from 2014, and mentions many tools that are not on Ubuntu 16, so I don’t find the migration guide very useful.
