If you’ve been waiting for this I’d like to thank you for your patience.
It is now possible to upgrade the Cinnamon edition of LMDE 2 to version 3.
The upgrade instructions are available at: https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2419
Take your time
Read all the instructions and take the time to understand them, ask for help if you’re stuck.
The instructions will ask you to make backups and to prepare system snapshots. Don’t rush into upgrading and do not take shortcuts.
