The release notes at https://slurm.schedmd.com/archive/slurm-19.05.5/news.html indicate you can upgrade from 17.11 or 18.08 to 19.05. I didn’t find equivalent release notes for 17.11.7, but upgrades over one major release should work.

I have located a 17.11.7 Ubuntu PPA (https://launchpad.net/~jonathonf/+archive/ubuntu/slurm) and have myself recently put up one for 19.05.5 (https://launchpad.net/~wdennis/+archive/ubuntu/dhpc-backports). Theoretically, I believe I should be able to upgrade from the 16.05 release to 17.11, then from 17.11 to 19.05, correct? (going under the assumption that can only go forward at most 2 Slurm releases, which went 16.05 -> 17.02 -> 17.11 -> 18.08 -> 19.05, if I am correct.)
