What is the error? I would recommend figuring out the error and
rsync'ing the repo to your USB disk and doing as I suggested before.

This depends on what you really want to achieve. If you have a backup
of any data you want to save a full reinstall is generally cleaner and
less error prone than an upgrade. I was under the impression that this
was an offline but important machine of some sort and you want wanted
to bring it up to date on security patches etc. in which case
reinstall would be overkill.
Either way would work just fine, up to you.
