To upgrade to the latest non-LTS development release  set Prompt=normal in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades. that means you might not see the upgrade immediately, as it takes time from the older version.

    If you are using windows:a. Install Rufus through this link: rufus.ieb. Plug in a separate storage drive. (Remember: All information on the storage drive will be lost)c. Select FreeDOS from the bootable selection list. (Sorry if my terminologies are bad, haven't used Rufus from a long time. I basically mean to make the storage drive bootable with FreeDOS)d. Once the storage drive is bootable, go to file explorer and copy the BIOS file to the storage drive.e. Restart your system and select the storage drive from the boot list.f. You will be presented with a command line interface. Type .exe (The file name should be exact and do not use the symbols that I have used (Just for you to understand that it should be the file name)For example: A dell latitude e5440 system would have a BIOS file named "E5440A24.exe". Type exactly the file name without the quotes. And type ONLY the file name, no command in suffix or prefix.g. You will be presented with a screen to agree or disagree whether to flash the BIOS file or not. Type 'y' or whatever the instructions tell you to do so.

    Donwload Rufus and install it.
    - Here comes the fun part, time to boot it up !:Prepare a 16GO or more USB Flash Drive(8GO might be OK since the ISO is 4.4 to 5 Go but if you can go for a bit more), and make sure nothing important is on it.Donwload Rufus and install it.
  • Are there other places where you can download Windows ISOs aside from the official Microsoft one?
    First, make sure you create the bookable media properly. It sounds like you're running Windows, so I advise Rofus. If you're on a Mac, or Linux, Etcher is worth a look.
