Upgrade 18.04 to 20.04 but retain kernel 4.9

Hi I have an Odroid N2 (Arm 64) with 18.04 MATE. Hardkernel also provide a 2.04 version but downloading their version means a complete reinstall.

Is it possible for me to perform an upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 but not upgrade the kernel?

It is theoretically possible but nobody is going to know how to do it nor spend time working out how to do it as it would leave the installation in an unstable state and there would be no support for such a configuration. Theoretically possible does not mean actually possible in the real world or feasible. Personally I think this line of thought is a dead end and you should make some other arrangement or accommodation.

Hi walter,

you can try using the "Something else method" which might help if you have a root and home partition!. :grinning:
