UPGRADEVery important - make a backup before performing the upgrade!
To upgrade NixOS you have to do the following.
First, you should check which channel uses:
nix-channel --list | grep nixos
After that, the new 21.05 channel is added:
nix-channel --add https://nixos.org/channels/nixos-21.05 nixos
And last but not least, the actual upgrade via:
nixos-rebuild switch --upgrade
YEAH! - NixOS 21.05 - the best OS in the world!
