beasue any application which can't read it's data after upgrade to a new
version is f**g crap and pretty unusable when using as example
distro-packages - when you forgot the dump with the old version your are

additionally that means you have downtimes nobody needs, a dist-upgrade
here is a "dnf --releasever=xx distro-sync" for 11 years now followed by
