The overall summary is that you need to be doing at least one Update Per Year to stay on a Supported path with Microsoft. Fortunately, the new updates are quite simple and not as involved as upgrades in the past. Stay Up To Date! If you get behind a year or more, you get into the same situation of doing more complex upgrades.
As an example of a supported (tested by Microsoft) upgrade path to 18.5.XXXX (October 2022 Release) or 2022 Year-End would be from GP 2016 16.00.814 or later and GP 18.3.1173 or later.
