Doesn't Linux Mint provide an upgrade facility for you?

No idea.

I use Linux Mint, I believe I upgraded once *. I don't think it was complex, just an upgrade through the standard UI for updates.

* Note: I have a bad memory when it comes to things like this :)


Mint always supported upgrades between LTS releases. There were no upgrades between non-LTS releases, which were basically just bit-more-stable betas. That's changed now as posted above, Mint 14.04 to 15.10 (and possibly longer) will be seamlessly upgradable release to release as Mint gradually diverges away from its Ubuntu base. 16.04 may be a reset, or they may continue to diverge further, or they may move fully to Debian; but they'll probably still have an upgrade path as it will be an LTS.
