How to switch from Bodhi 4 to Bodhi 5?

Greetings to everybody!

I've been using Bodhi 4 since 2017 and too lasy to check out the latest version.
But I guess I will have to jump to Bodhi 5 sooner or later.
My question is: What's the proper way to replace B4 with B5?
Do I have to simply install it over B4? Am I going to loose all my apps and
(non copied) documents from the B4 partition?

Hello there

Bodhi is a semi rolling release distribution based on Ubuntu. It means you need to reinstall the main releases. Backup your work and install from scratch. This is the best method to avoid troubles. Maybe some other user will reply also with their experience.

fresh install even though for me it is a pain due to 3 laptops in the house and also i am picky about the various layouts and tweakings i have to do but i believe it is god until 4/2023. so you have a few years of use.
