No update of major version possible?

Postby pstein » Fri Feb 07, 2014 9:20 am

When I run the Update Manager in v14 I expected an update to next major version 15.

But this seems to be not possible.

Do I have to enable major update somewhere?

Sorry Peter that doesn't work in Mint Update. If you want to update versions you have to reinstall. I know it works in Ubuntu and of course Mint is Ubuntu based but the Mint developers do not like the idea of version updates through the update tool so have not included that function with the tool.
