 Preparing for OS upgrade
#1
I need to upgrade the current Kubuntu version 16.04.6 LTS to the latest version because there are some issues with the Python version at present. I feel it can only be resolved by upgrading the OS.

In the preparation for that, do I just use pip to list all the installed packages, write that to a file, and then use that as a basis for re-installing Python packages again.

You shouldn't need to touch your OS to upgrade python.
It's a relative simple procedure.
Go to https://www.python.org/downloads/
and download the linux package (you most likely want the 64 bit version)
follow the installation instructions as you run the script
make sure to select the option to save environment variables.
