I always do a “do-release-upgrade” after about a month or two. But this time, I think I will have to go for a fresh install.
Because this version doesn’t support i386 code and I have both i386 and amd64 packages, I am not sure how this will turn out if I go this route.
Has anyone tried the “do-release-update”? What was the result? Did the upgrade break anything?

So far - so good....
