  • Linux Lite: 5.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-8130U CPU @ 2.20GHz

  • MEMORY: 6Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Mesa DRI Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620 (Kabylake GT2)

  • Kernel: 5.x
I'm using 4.8 and want to move to 5.6. My question is does Timeshift work for this or is it only for upgrading within a series?
Thanks

I think you might have some problems, since LL 4.8 is/was based off Ubuntu 18.04, whereas LL 5.6 is based off Ubuntu 20.04, and some libraries as well as some packages have been updated. Your best bet is doing a fresh install to make sure everything works as expected.

Thx. I'll backup all my files and take screen shots of all my setups before I make the change.
It's good to be able to get input from the more experienced.
