I would not "upgrade" an installation, rather I would install a new
version along side of the existing one.
And I always install fpc/lazarus inside of the home dir instead of
using a global installation.
So at the moment I have fpc 3.0.4 plus lazarus 2.0.2, 2.0.4, 2.0.6 and
2.0.8 all available from the Mate menu (mate desktop under Ubuntu
18.04 LTS).

You can definitely also have lazarus 1.8.x too if you want.
All sources are available via subversion.
