    Make a backup. Then you can't lose the old configuration. I won't say upgrading is completely safe but it definitely depends on what plugins you have installed. Post the output of: dpkg -l | grep openm


    I do recommend a clean install. Even when I upgraded Windows 2012 R2 to 2016 today, it highly recommended doing a clean install.

  • There is no btsync or ddclient in OMV 3.x. So, you will need to remove those. The rest should be ok other than maybe plex? It can problematic sometimes.

  • Plex works on OMV 3.x. The upgrade just can be problematic.
    btsync can be replaced with syncthing.
    ddclient - can't you run an update client on your desktop? I guess I look at porting it. I don't want to maintain it though.
