The only way to update from 4.5 to 5.0 is to reinstall. Sorry.

This really is a bad news if The only way to update from 4.5 to 5.0 is to reinstall the OS.
Last time put a lot of efforts to make the wireless work on this old Dell laptop.
It will be hassle to reinstall the OS. Don't have courage to reinstall the OS again.
I will wait , hopefully , in the future, Bodhi will make the upgrade available without reinstall the OS.
best expectation.

What was your hassle with the wireless? a Driver issue? What model Dell?

It's quite quick to install Bodhi 5 :-) Never had any issues with Bodhi at all with install. When installing Bodhi 5 the wireless icon doesn't appear after install, but it appears after you reboot then you can connect to wifi.

I don't think that is the right link but I think I found it anyways. Regardless I suppose we have different ideas of what is tedious. But I am a developer/programmer so that is to be expected. Maybe at some point you will get some newer hardware and be more confident about installing a recent version of Bodhi. Of course I also use old hardware until the bitter end or I end up giving it away.

Good luck!

What is the wifi issue? The linked thread was for Puppy Linux and I could never get that to connect to wifi either! After installing 5 you can upgrade to 5.1 via updates/upgrades.

The wifi issue is an unsupported drive and having to manually find and install the right driver as far as I can tell. A better way to get 5.1 is to install my rc ISOs. Not much is going to be changed in the final release. But yes updating via apt is almost the same thing.

All is long time ago.
I can't remember what I did to make it works, just followed the advise to run some commands, looks like
added the device driver and updated the gcc...
Try several device drivers and sounds the drivers were located in a website ( a guru told me the link, can't remember, ).
Back and forth, etc...
Before installed Bodhi, I run lubuntu on it, but same things, the wifi did not work.
this time the wifi is working, so lucky this time. that is why I am afraid to reinstall the OS ,
The issue is this is an OLD laptop. I am worried to repeat the same story .

Fully understand that. That kind of stuff is not for everyone. Takes some degree of expertise to get it right.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

The problem is that 16.04 is beyond end of life. The repos for xenial are no longer active, so no update using those sources is possible. The current active *buntu distro versions are 18.04 and 19.10. 20.04, the next LTS is in beta right now and while pretty good is not very stable.

Hopefully some day can do the upgrade without reinstall the OS.

The chip may be supported by the b43-fwcutter package in the *buntu repos. Of course, it's pretty hard to download something when you don't have a 'net connection. I always keep a cat 5 or 6 cable around to connect to my router. The ethernet (almost) always works
