Easy version upgrade tutorial fixed

March 09, 2019 — BarryK

In the release notes for EasyOS 1.0.11, I mentioned that, as "the goal-posts have shifted" somewhat, some of the online documentation needs to be updated, Here is a start:

Clicking on the 'initrd' file to automatically fix the 'BOOT_SPECS' file, has been a bit problematic, and still not right on 1.0.11. But, it is easy enough to manually edit the 'BOOT_SPECS' file.

I think now that I have got the automatic fixing of 'BOOT_SPECS' working properly, and that will be in the 1.0.12+ release. Auto-fixing, when it works, does make upgrading an installation to a new version, a super-simple operation.
