Hello,

Patch-based upgrade is not supported for major releases of IntelliJ IDEA.
You need to download and install the full distribution.

How can I update my IDEA, if "Download Patch and Restart" button
missing?

I don't think patch-based upgrades are ever available for major releases.

You get the option to keep your old settings.

After you get the new one going, you can uninstall the old, but tell
it to keep settings.

For me, the appeal of computer programming is that
even though I am quite a klutz,
I can still produce something, in a sense
perfect, because the computer gives me as many
chances as I please to get it right.
