Is it still rolling upgrade from 20.2.4 to 20.3?

The Deepin 20.3 has been released for 3 or more weeks. My Deepin keeps popping up a message "new system editions available". The latest version hasn't been installed though. Does the version still do the rolling upgrade or do I have to do manual installation? I installed the 20.2 version initially. And its rolling upgrade updated the consequent releases automatically before the 20.3 version.

The terms "rolling release" and "automatic upgrade" are two different things.

According to Distrowatch, Deepin is not a rolling release any more (but it was until 2016).

For automatic upgrades, there's probably an explanation on the Deepin Wiki, but I don't know Chinese so can't confirm.
(If there isn't, the Debian wiki has a page and probably works the same for Deepin.)

Luckily, they have translated Package Management into English.
