Should I Upgrade?
My Rock64 is currently running:

Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.4.132-1075-rockchip-ayufan-ga83beded8524 aarch64)

I see that Ubuntu 18.04.1 is ready for upgrade but when I started the upgrade I was cautioned about doing this via SSH. Since my use is exclusively Samba & FTP, is there a really good reason to upgrade at this time? I probably should have gone with a simple Debian build in the first place but I have little interest in starting over.

What is the likelihood that the distro upgrade via SSH will crash? How stable is 18.04 LTS?

Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

I upgraded. Now I'm here to fix what broke. The upgrade took hours, asked many questions and after a few hard reboots I don't have a working ethernet connection. If I hadn't installed to the eemc I would just reflash the SD.
