    19.10 to 20.04 LTS release?

    Is it possible if you are running 19.10, upgrade to 20.04 when it's released, then stay with 20.04 by changing preferences (at that time) to "Notify for long-term support versions" instead of "For any new version"? Or, because I installed 19.10 I need to stay with the 6-month point release cycle?

    Thanks.

    There's no difference (other than usage cruft) between a freshly installed version and an upgraded version. Once you're on an LTS release you can stay there till support runs out if you want. You can also do upgrades whenever you want regardless of the notification settings.

    Yes you can change from all releases, to LTS only, or when on 22.04 sometime in the future switch back to all release path.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Upgrades has some detail on upgrade policy (I know there is a better document with diagrams/pictures, but I couldn't find it sorry).

    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
    sudo apt dist-upgrade
    sudo apt clean
    sudo apt install update-manager-core
    sudo do-release-upgrade -d
    Dead easy

    Not "dead easy" (for newbies), not recommended unless you explicitly want the development brunch and has a mistake: With 'apt' instead of 'apt-get', it's 'full-upgrade', not 'dist-upgrade'.
