Ubuntu have releases several ARM versions but none ARM device is available which user can install Ubuntu ARM version from the oldest one and upgrade it to the latest one.

This situation reflect current ecosystem for ARM device ie. user cannot upgrade its OS.

But now ARM CPU and GPU used on SOC already let ARM device can work like real computer and Ubuntu also make efforts on his ARM version for many years.

What's the key factors to prevent it happen?
Which factor will be overcome by Ubuntu's upcoming ARM version in near future and which factor will not have a good solution in many(3-5) years?
