Is it possible to update the Kubernetes version within a LKE cluster

LKE was recently updated to support kubernetes 1.18 and i could not find a way to update my existing cluster to that version.

Is it possible to migrate a cluster to new kubernetes versions?
Or, if not - will it be possible to migrate to new kubernetes versions in the future?

As of right now, you would need to deploy a new Kubernetes cluster with the latest version and migrate over to it, so in that regard it can be done.

That said, our LKE developers are looking into an option of a "one-click upgrade" for LKE. While we don't have a release date for you, I'd suggest keeping on eye on the following for updates to LKE:
