I have a GitLab (v 11.0.3) installed on a Debian 8.11 jessie server. As you can imagine this is a pretty old installation.
Updating these seem a bit tricky - there are many intermediate versions.
My question is: do you thing migrating the repositories to a newly deployed server (like Debian 10 or Ubuntu 20.04) and a newly installed GitLab (higher/last version) would work?
Or the only way is to update everything: server + GitLab?
It would be already great if I can at least move it to a newly deployed server, with the same Git version.
