    Well, certain library upgrades require rebuilding everything that uses them, which could end up being a lot. Once the web of interdependencies grows to be too large, it ends up being easier to bundle the new versions together into a new release. Hopefully, that build then receives enough testing that you (the user) can have some confidence in the library versions chosen and their ability to play nicely with each other.

      Yes, but i mean strait from the desktop, as ubuntu does.

      E.g.: getting a notification there is a new version available and allow the user to upgrade from the desktop (not from the iso). (like, ubuntu, windows, macos...)
