I need a little help.
It's time for an OS upgrade of one of our Ubuntu Focal (LTS) server, for a year has been running successfully a R installation here, which we installed according to the official instructions.
With a lot of packages installed and needed, fine tuning, different databases connected (at least 20 of them). So my question, because I've read a lot of descriptions about this and they are not clear,
how to do this OS upgrade without the most pain, do I really have to reinstall the whole R?
Like this: sudo apt-get purge r-base r-recommended r-cran-, sudo apt autoremove
Do I have to do all the settings again and reinstall the packages?
Or is it sufficient to update the repos to "Jammy"?
Thank you for any possible guidance on this topic
