OK, thanks.
In fact this server is on the receiving end of a svnsync command started at
the main SVN server on a Windows Server 16 machine across the Atlantic.
It runs VisualSVN and the backups are triggered in the middle of the night
via a Scheduled Task on Windows.

I guess that if I upgrade the Ubuntu server the svn connection needed for svnsync
will not be destroyed and therefore the sync operations would run OK.
The VisualSVN server will probably also need an update but on Windows that is
a different complexity altogether...
