Doesn't Linux Mint provide an upgrade facility for you? Looks to me
that you have gone with the wrong distro of choice. ;)
Upgrading by using apt is doable, but from what you've demonstrated
about your knowledge, I wouldn't recommend it to you.

If your /home is on a separate partition, just download the latest LTS
iso and do a fresh install. Only thing to note is that when it comes
to partitioning, you must absolutely not destroy your /home unless you
want your personal files gone. :)
