Re: Grub Install or not ?

17 has older grub, so better to install grub too. Won't LM 19 update take care of the Grub update, or is the LM 19 actually needed for improved installation/boot process, compared to that of LM 17 ? I recall doing a few Grub updates over lifetime of LM17, and my grub is grub-efi-amd64, version: 2.0...

Re: How to preserve user data from existing system to new system install ?

When installing 19.2, you should create a separate, new partition for /home, so in the future you can easily upgrade to version 20 without having to copy/move user data. That is what I should have done with earlier system(s) but at least now I know. So for next time root / should be installed on ex...
