Stupid question. Why update it if it's working? Of course I do install all updates offered by update manager, but that is all.
Kernel: 4.15.0-46-generic x86_64 bits
Desktop: Cinnamon 3.8.9
Distro: Linux Mint 19 Tara

Laptop HP-ProBook-470-G2 8Gb RAM SSD
Server AMD Phenom 9650 - GEForce 9400GT 6Gb RAM
+ three other Mint machines
Out of my mind - please leave a message

The all-in-one printer I recently bought is not supported in the HPLIP version installed in LMDE.
If you're looking for a greener Linux pasture, you won't find any that is greener than Linux Mint. ;)
