If you download the ISO image and write it to a USB stick, you won't
have to do anything except click a few radio buttons. Grab the
install image, and when you boot to it, choose "update" instead of

I did not get the comment about keeping repositories - from the
installation media? Do I need to install 15.2 first for this new 15.3
installation process to work?
That certainly would be significant change worth describing in detail
on the ISO download page.
The OP spoke of updating, rather than doing a fresh install. It is
always a good idea to do an update from the most recent previous
version, ie. 15.1 to 15.2 to 15.3 for example.
I certainly did not say that updating is preferred over doing a fresh
install. If that is what you wish to do, then nothing of what I said
applies to you.
Finally, this is certainly *not* a "new" installation process. From the
DVD/USB image, you have always had a choice to do a new installation, or
to update a previously installed version.
Description in detail is not necessary anywhere, because the choices are
so obvious when you boot from a DVD/USB install image.
