I think if you want a minimal install then don't install the app package :-) And with a minimal install apt is a good way of installing basic software. I don't fully understand snaps myself apart from the concept of it, but I prefer to keep things simple and minimal personally.

Many distros require reinstalling when a new long term support version comes out. At present Bodhi 5 can be upgraded to Bodhi 5.1 via upgrades. But Bodhi 4 is based on the old Ubuntu long term support 16.04 so can't be upgraded via updates. It's the same with most distros based on 16.04. New long term support is 18.04 and Bodhi 5 is based on that. You shouldn't need to reinstall until 2023 now :-)

For the upgrading without reinstall the OS, Sounds Ubuntu can do it.
See this link :

"Upgrade Ubuntu With A Single Command Using zzupdate
The official and recommended way to upgrade any Ubuntu version to the next available version is to run the following commands one by one and follow the onscreen instructions.

For Ubuntu Desktop:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
$ sudo reboot
$ sudo update-manager -d "

Hi serendipity7000,
This is good, but if what apply to Ubuntu also apply to Bodhi ? So bodhi and Ubutu share the same path ?

I don't know about that sorry but yes Bodhi is based on Ubuntu, along with other distros like Linux Mint - but different.
