0000160: [RfE] Better update procedure
Please provide better bananian-update handling.

a) put a simple file online that contains all releases of Bananian

b) modify all existing update.sh scripts to check the last line of the aforementioned file to get a clue whether a user tries to skip intermediate Bananian updates (since people always misunderstand 'never change a running system' https://www.faq-o-matic.net/2008/02/20/never-change-a-running-system-bullshit/ [^]

c) create an update FAQ mentioning this fact that bananian-update will NOT update to the latest release but instead to the next. Put all the warnings from inside update.sh online for each individual release

d) provide better error handling inside update.sh -- always check exit status of relevant commands like mount, mv, cp and so on
