I recall reading the early releases of the 22.04 LTS releases were a little wonky, so I held off upgrading my system from 20.04 LTS. I'm reluctant to perform an in-place upgrade even though I'm periodically prompted to do so. I like the LTS releases, but it disturbs me that MATE is only supported for three years, not five. I'm now on the third, and soon-to-be unsupported release, so I have to plan on upgrading. I have a 20Tb file system, and even though most of that is on its own file system mount point, everything is physically located on a single RAID array, so I'd hate to risk everything if I botch the upgrade.
Suggestions, anyone? Tips? Helpful advice?
