Switching from Ubuntu or Linux Mint to Zorin OS Core

Is there a way to switch from Ubuntu or Mint to Zorin Core? Precisely like downloading the requiring packages using apt-get and then after completion cleanup of the same using autoclean and autoremove.

This is a tricky question. yes, you can install the Zorin Desktop using the Zorin repos along with the rest of Zorin Gnome-Extensions and apps.

However, you really are safer and better off performing a fresh install that has everything installed and meshed. Moreover, using the repositories for Mint, POP_OS, etc can cause Breakage on the Zorin packages due to the different distros using different versions or dependencies. It is risky, tedious and not worth it.
