Yes, and no. Officially, there's no support for upgrades from one series to the next, i.e. 5 to 6. The recommended way is to do a fresh install. That being said, you can try this:

Backup your system before doing that with timeshift is recommended, should anything go wrong, you can get it back the way it was. :)
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

If you're lucky, you'll get the base of jammy, but not any of the 6.0 features. That is NOT supported and won't be.
