Unless you're an expert, the only way to do it and keep all your

only go online after the upgrade finishes. This really is a pity when
you see Ubuntu with a one click upgrade with everything coming from
Internet after each new release.

It is a major advantage to be able to install or upgrade every kind of software independent of the internet. In fact, it is a prerequisite for user control.

For user control one cannot be dependent on the presence of external services or repositories in order to install on one's own system - the independence from net-based software subscriptions and services is the greatest advantage of Open Source and Linux.
