If one wishes to upgrade from Trisquel 8 to Trisquel 9 and one has bought a Libre Boot laptop with encrypted disk drive does the encryption imply that a different process should be employed when upgrading Trisquel version?

Or can one upgrade simply using a standard command such as described within this recent post, with full disk encryption maintained automagically?

I'm imagining optimistically that once you are typing in a Trisquel 8 terminal an instruction to upgrade to Trisquel 9 then you are already working inside the FDE security layer and therefore any changes you make remain inside that encryption security the same as any other change such as installing a new package.

However, I would take comfort from learning the views of other/more experienced Trisquel and/or encryption users so many thanks in advance to any of you who care to offer views or comments on this topic.

You can just upgrade. But backup your data before. You should do so regularly anyway.
