I wish it were that simple. Fedora, Ubuntu, Mandrake, Gentoo and Mint all had the same issues (yes, I distro-hopped while trying to find a good solution). Every six months a new update came out and, if you wanted the latest security patches, you had to update, which meant a day or two of fixing all my hardware.

I'm going to conduct an experiment with Ubuntu 19.10 this week. I realize it will be better than it was. Hopefully I can make it work for me this time.

You still get the latest security updates with Ubuntu LTS (and derivatives of it) - though Mint can be a pain due to the way the devs deecided to hold back some updates, which is why i don't use Mint
