I have a website that is running on Drupal 8.5.4. I want to update it to Drupal 8.6.3 through the manual update option (link).
Can I directly update it to 8.6.3 skipping the releases in between? None of the releases in between (8.5.5, 8.5.6, 8.6.0, 8.5.7, 8.6.1, 8.5.8, 8.6.2) had updates to the default.settings.php file, and I don’t have any custom modifications to the files composer.json, .htaccess and robots.txt either (which means I can overwrite these 3 files with the ones that come with the updated Drupal code).
I read somewhere on the internet (link) that, while updating Drupal, we can skip minor and patch updates in between. But the release notes for 8.6.2 (link) says sites running Drupal 8.5.X should first update to 8.5.8 and update to 8.6.X later.
Does this mean I should first update to 8.5.8 and then to 8.6.3? Or can I directly update to 8.6.3?
Thanks in advance.
