I know I originally installed Mint 15, but it has done incremental updates. I can't see how but is it possible it's done a full upgrade to Mint 16 along the way?

Kind regards,


Please ignore that last. Despite seemingly ignoring all my inputs into the command line, Mint's GUI based Updater then noticed I had added new repositories and promptly did all the updating. Why it didn't allow the terminal to do it is anyone's guess. Anyway, I have now rebooted and despite resetting my background to the default Mint one - which admittedly was handy as it shouted Mint 16 at me telling me it had upgraded - all seems to be OK.
