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

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.
