Hello @techtic.jigu,

Oh, I understood you incorrectly. To update your instance to a newer one the only available way is to migrate your data to a new instance. This is because we usually update not only WP but also the other assets shipped such as PHP or MySQL. To migrate your instance, you can follow our guide at https://docs.bitnami.com/aws/how-to/migrate-wordpress/.

You can check our WP changelog to compare the differences between your instance and newer ones.
