15 With a year old system you should question if reinstalling your system after a
16 back up of configuration and data files would be a smarter approach. If you
17 *must* upgrade your current installation for learning or as an experiment,
18 then this is something which has been done before. You will need to walk
19 through all the major upgrades of the last year, by using git to gradually
20 catch up with the latest stable versions. This means a lot of packages will
21 have to be updated a number of times.
23 Personally, I'd back up /home /etc and world file, plus any databases or
24 websites if stored under /var/, then untar the latest stage 3 tarball and
25 update @system and @world. Overall it should be a *much* faster approach to
26 allow you to bring your installation up to date.
