Sooo Linux Mint LMDE 3 is Cinnamon-only, and there's no upgrade path from LMDE 2 MATE to LMDE 3

cool. cool cool cool.

Or is it that you can only upgrade *to* Cinnamon? I'd be fine with that.

This is all because I can't get gcc-5 on LMDE 2. Grr. Arg.

LMDE 3 was released 31 Aug 2018
LMDE 2 reaches EOL 1 Jan 2019

that's... pretty fucked, right? especially as the MATE version has no upgrade path and has to be a fresh install?

I installed LMDE 2 MATE in June and there was no indication anywhere that it was a bad idea.
