My guess is that you have to do successive upgrades:

  • 16->18
  • 18->20
  • 20->22

This is Canonical's usual ploy…make it as painful as possible to skip a rev. With this amount of work, I would just spin up a new Linode on 22.04 start over. You'll still have your old one so you can transfer all your personal files to the new one with scp.

-- sw

okay please how to transfer the personal files to new one

@fokana You can use the scp command or transfer files over SFTP. The following guide has explains these options a bit more in depth.
