Where are Mint 14, 15, and 16 Mate downloads?

Post by bobpegram » Fri Dec 15, 2017 4:51 pm

I still have Mint 13 on my computer. I want to update/upgrade to 18. I have been told the easiest way is to do it one version at a time - upgrade to 14, then upgrade to 15, etc. That avoids wiping the drive and starting over. Also, I have a dual boot Win7/Mint machine. Keeping the Win 7 partition makes wiping the entire drive something to avoid.
Mint used to have all versions available for download so I thought I could download any version at any point. Now only 17 and 18 ISO downloads are shown. Help. Thanks.

No--you can only upgrade starting with Mint 17.
Back up your stuff and install fresh
You will most likely not have to lose your Win7

Sorry friend, but you were told wrong: moving up from 13 to 14 would mean a new install, as well. Not that this is possible: only currently supported versions are offered for download. On the bright side, like all41 says, there is no need to wipe your Win7 installation.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!
