I always install rather than upgrade because I prefer it, not because I 
think it is necessarily the best way. I do a backup of /home first on to 
an external hard drive, or at least those parts which I want to keep. 
Then I set up the new version exactly how I want it first, and then copy 
over just those parts of the previous /home that I want to keep.

I know that it is a pain and takes a while, but I don’t mind. And, as I 
normally stick with the LTS versions, it does not happen very often.

As I said, each to his own.
