As on IRC, it's a standard Debian system, it will upgrade as a standard
Debian system would upgrade with the same customisations.

Change the apt sources to point at the upgrade release.

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

Check the output of the upgrade commands.

Customisations in /etc/ will be retained just as in Debian.

If you've changed stuff in /usr then those changes will be lost.
