    I'm not sure. I know I've tried that before and it's ended up a huge mess.

    I do recall that method being used to bump a normal release to the development version, though.

    Only if you want a broken system.

    In the olden days (I'm talking 2006 and earlier here), that's actually what you had to do. In more recent times, upgrading has become a bit too complicated to work like that. Update Manager has the necessary smarts to deal with upgrades from one version to the next, but Apt can't do it on its own.

    Even then, Update Manager seems to have some trouble because there are often people who complain that it doesn't work, however I've never actually had a problem. Probably because I don't do outrageous things to my operating system. Even if you believe Update Manager works, just changing your sources.list alone will probably break things.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    This has always been possible (and I've done it a few times); it's just not supported, recommended, or extensively tested.

    I know there have always been people who tried that, but what I meant was that I read somewhere that it may be the official way because Ubuntu's interim versions are going quasi-rolling and the 9 month support cycle is a part of it. I was asking whether there is any truth to it.

    A rolling development release was a proposal in March, but I can't seem to find any updates. I take a wait and see approach to all things Ubuntu.

    Yeah. To by honest, I much prefer the Debian way of upgrading to the way Ubuntu does it.

    Indeed. I haven't heard anything else about that either.
