What is "rough" about
1. Alter sources.list
2. apt update
3. apt upgrde
4. apt full-upgrade ?
If it was any simpler, there would be complaints that upgrading from
one Debian version to another is too smooth. :)
There is a school of thought which maintains that a reininstallation
is preferable to an upgrade when there is a new stable. You appear to
belong to this school, which is fine.
