From which version do you want to upgrade ?

In general pckon ("sudo pckon refresh && sudo pckon -y update") is your friend.
Discovery is a GUI tool to manage updates.
Ich you want to upgrade the distro (Ubuntu) version KDE Neon is based on, look at "apt dist-upgrade"

You already should be in the latest Neon version, automatically.

As Neon has a 'rolling' Plasma, etc, you always have the latest versions of those, if you are updating regularly.
The underlying OS (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS) is also up to date, as long as you are doing the regular updates.

At some point after the next Ubuntu LTS is released (20.04, in April), Neon will offer a prompt to upgrade the whole OS to the new LTS.

Did you already upgraded Neon distro successfully? My two attempts to upgrade Kubuntu went wrong. Is it reliable with Neon ?

I run Kubuntu on my PC and Neon on my laptop. I have always upgraded Kubuntu with success, with only a dead hdd breaking the string gong back to 13.04.
I upgraded my Neon from 16.04 to 18.04 without issue as well.
