Nice.. Updated from 17.3 to 18 :)

Ok, ook, oooooookk!

As so many people bomb me on pw with questions about "how to upgrade",
here it is.. I wrote some tutorial for all. :p
Here you have it..

Yes! It is possible now to upgrade Mint from 17.3 to 18.
BTW: This is NOT for the LMDE edition!

Remember, v.18 is now in an ALPHA version and may have some bugs!
This is ONLY for ppl who knows what their doing and who knows how to
workaround some issues! For testing and developing purposes!

All You do, you're doing at your own risk!
Don't blame me if something goes wrong, if your home gonna burn or your grandma's cat fly's away!

I strongly recommend the full system backup before you do something!

Important, before you begin!

1. Amount of the downloaded data is circa ~2GB
2. Your system MUST BE UP TO DATE! If is not, use command:
sudo apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

3. Turn off all non standard repositories!
4. Optional - if you use the kernel which comes not with the Mint system, switch to standard one before upgrade! Just in case!
5. Read the troubleshooting section!

Ok.. Now the upgrade process..

1. You must change the system repos from Mint 17.3/Ubuntu 14.04 to Mint 18/Ubuntu 16.04
Open the terminal and do this:

sudo pluma /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list

and change all entries to those:
(You can backup this file before change anything)

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com sarah main upstream import backport
#----------------------------------------------------------------------------#
# OFFICIAL UBUNTU REPOS #
#----------------------------------------------------------------------------#
###### Ubuntu Main Repos
deb http://tl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://tl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial main restricted universe multiverse
###### Ubuntu Update Repos
deb http://tl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://tl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://tl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://tl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-updates main restricted universe multiverse
###### Ubuntu Partner Repo
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu xenial partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu xenial partner

Next save all changes and close the editor.

2. Go back to the terminal and do:

sudo apt-get update

Wait a bit until the system updates his new repos list
and do a second command:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Wait again until the system ends the packages downloading (circa 1.2GB of datas)

3. Now follow all the instructions on the screen which appears in the upgrading process.

4. At the end Your machine need a restart/reboot.
5. When Your system starts again, you can enable all your previously disabled repos and you can switch back to the non-standard kernel.
6. Some systems need a GFX/modem proprietary drivers reinstallation.
If You have one, do that.

Troubleshooting.

1. On some machines with Cinnamon DE, you need to (re)install the Cinnamon packages by hand after the upgrade:
sudo apt-get install cinnamon
Then make a reboot.

2. Some systems have errors with "libpng" package.
To fix this make like that:
sudo apt-get purge libpng
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Then make a reboot.

3. If you get the error like that: "W: http://packages.linuxmint.com/dists/sarah/Release.gpg: Signature by key E1A38B8F144675D060EA666F3EE67F3D0FF405B2 uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)"

Go here:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=818540
And try to resign this key like mentioned in the topic.


That's all.
Enjoy!:)

Taadaaamm! Linux Mint 17.3 on board!
Early upgrade works for Cinnamon, Mate and XFCE as for now.
---
All youre doing, You do at Your own risk!
I take no responsibility for any system damages,
burning houses, dead cats etc!

1. Make a BACKUP in case that something goes wrong!

2. Update your system:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo reboot

3. This step is optional. Not on a every machine is needed - check for yourself.
Uninstall all proprietary drivers and/or disable his repos.
After the upgrade reinstall those drivers and/or enable the repositories.

4. Change the system repositories to "Rosa" ones:
sudo sed -i 's/rafaela/rosa/' /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo sed -i 's/rafaela/rosa/' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list

Now all is ready to system upgrade.
We make them so:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

We waiting now a bit for downloading, installing and configuring all of the packages. When all is ready, system need a reboot:
sudo reboot

Now, when all goes ok, we have Mint 17.3 Rosa.
Optional step -> Now we can reinstall drivers and enable disabled repos.

For dual/multi boot systems grub must be updated for proper display "Mint 17.3" name:
sudo update-grub

In case that something goes wrong, or just don't like the new system,
with those commands we can roll back to a previous 17.2 version:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list

sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list.bak /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

That's all..
Enjoy :)

Thanks. As I noted in a previous comment, I was fortunate that Mint 14 included it as a standard in the distro.
