    I am currently using antiX 17. See below:
    $ inxi -S
    System:
    Host: antix1 Kernel: 4.9.126-antix.1-486-smp i686 bits: 32 Desktop: IceWM 1.4.2
    Distro: antiX-17_386-full Heather Heyer 24 October 2017

    I would like to upgrade to 17.2 if it is not too complicated to do. Can it just be applied on top of antiX 17 or do I have to do a fresh install?
    Please explain how to upgrade.
    Thank you.

    No fresh install needed.

    You already have the latest kernel.
    All you need to do is an apt-get dist-upgrade and (if you want pulseaudio) apt-get install pulseaudio pavucontrol

    inxi will still show the version you started out with since we (the devs) thought it better to show what the user started with if/when seeking support.

    Nope. No fresh install should be needed. My Chromebook is current as of yesterday with a dist-upgrade. When Anti uploads the 17.2 changes. I will get those also. Like you.
    after I do a

    sudo apt-get update

    Let it finish

    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    Pretty simple. Easier than backing up everything and doing a reinstall. This chromebook is labled as AntiX 17. Because that is when I installed it.
    But I am current so I am on 17.2

    My Take is 17.2 isos are for new arrivals to the 17 iso. Without the need to do a massive upgrade online . Since I and you do ths gradually. We are cool.

    Edit. Anti is quicker on the draw.

    I update every time I boot up. Today, I tried the dist-upgrade and there were no new apps available beyond the four I don’t want to update.

    I assume that is normal?

    Ho installato Antix-17.1 i386 base Heather Heyer 17 marzo 2018. Ho provato l’upgrade alla versione 17.2 seguendo le indicazioni fornite, ma, digitando inxi -S appare sempre la versione 17.1

    A fully dist-upgraded antiX-17 and antiX-17.1 is the same as antiX-17.2 (provided you manually install the latest kernel and pulseaudio pavucontrol – needed for firefox to play audio ootb). inxi -S will still show your original install though.
