Hi, I waited too long to upgrade my 10.10, and the repositories are now offline.

So what I'm thinking to do is back up my settings and files, then do a fresh install of 12.04, the restore them.

I have Deja Dup, and I can easily back up to an external HD. Then after doing the upgrade, re-install Deja Dup for restoring.

But do I restore everything in my /home directory and subs? Or is there a list of "do these, don't do these" somewhere I need to refer to.

Any pointers to "how to do it" articles would be welcome.
