how to upgrade? - skipper - 06-10-2019

I have several rock64 boards running bionic-containers-rock64-0.7.9-1067-arm64.img.xz
I now see there's a new pre-release/upgrade available bionic-containers-rock64-0.8.0rc14-1134-arm64.img.xz
My question is:
Is it enough to do
sudo apt-get update -y
sudo apt-get install linux-rock64 -y
..would that upgrade the 0.7.9 version to the 0.8.0 version? ..and how do I see that it's the 0.8.0 version?
..or do I need to take out the SD card, format it and install 0.8.0 from scratch?
I wouldn't like to re-format and re-install all the boards, as I have them all modified and fine-tuned with many features, settings and programs.

After having tried the install linux-rock64 command I now see this when logging in:
Welcome to Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS (Gnu/Linux 4.4.167-1201-rockchip-ayufan-g74fa6c44ee39 aarch64)
Is that the 0.8.0 version linked above?
