    You don’t use ‘sudo’ with ‘mintupgrade’, the instructions are wrong in this regard. Just drop ‘sudo’ and you’ll be fine.

    When I run the command $ sudo mintupgrade download the terminal sends me “please don’t run this command as root or with elevated privileges.” Who can I fix this problem? I opened and closed the terminal, but I still have the same problem.
