### Base system upgrades
If you want to upgrade the base operating system of the platform that
Taiga runs on (say, upgrade from Ubuntu Bionic to Ubuntu Focal
in-place), you *should* be able to do that [in the usual
manner](https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-upgrade-from-ubuntu-18-04-lts-to-20-04-lts-today),
and then continue to manage Taiga using Ansible.
However, the recommended course of action is to create a backup of
your Taiga instance running on your old system, and then populate a
freshly installed instance on the new system, by restoring data from
that backup. To do so, use the exact same backup and restore procedure
as described above, just update your inventory in between.
