It looks like Acronis decided to abandon Acronis True Image software, one of the consequences being that it's not possible to upgrade the software to newer versions. Please confirm

Hi!
Thank you for your posting! 

In terms of licensing, all previous versions can be upgraded to the most up-to-date one (currently, Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office). 

If your current version is Acronis True Image 2021 or Acronis True Image 2020, then Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office will simply update it; there is no need to remove the old version and reinstall the software. If your current version Acronis True Image 2019 or older, we recommend that you remove the currently installed version before installing Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office.

For more details please see https://kb.acronis.com/acronis-true-image-2022/upgrade

If you version of ATI supports saving settings, you should save you settings before either direct upgrade or uninstalling old version and then installing the newer version.
