prometheus-oxymandias-upgrade

Please use at your own risk and make sure to make a backup of your personal data first before attempting the upgrade.
On a btrfs partition it is highly recommend to create a snapshot of your current filesystem state. You can do so with the command

    sudo btrfs subvolume snapshot / /@_snapshot

To perform the upgrade, open a terminal (yakuake or konsole) and type the following commands:

wget http://pub.netrunner-os.com/upgrade-15_to_16.sh

chmod a+xr upgrade-15_to_16.sh

sudo ./upgrade-15_to_16.sh

During the upgrade, you’ll see a lot of information appear in the terminal and you might see a few warnings/errors. As long as they don’t halt the upgrade, you can ignore them.
If you get asked about restarting services accept it.

The upgrade may take a while (up to 1:30 hours, depending on your machine and you Internet connection), so be prepared for that.

Notice: The default prometheus wallpaper will be replaced with the default Plasma 5 one if you still have that set. If you want to keep the old Prometheus wallpaper make sure to save it from /usr/share/wallpapers.
