Update Hugo with its theme

I used to use hugo-cactus-theme (Cactus Theme) as the Hugo theme for since its inception in 2017.
At that time I could not take time to choose the theme carefully and neither have I until this week.

I found the theme I chose was deprecated and have used Hugo 0.62.2 to build the site.

Pathway to healthy build system

As some breaking changes happened in Hugo 0.93, I was not able to directly update it to the latest and I needed to update the system to the latest (Hugo 0.101.0) in this way 😭

Choose your theme for website very carefully and create your own if you can 🍀
