How did I upgrade from Magento 2.2.6 to 2.3.2?

Step 1

I replaced the the root’s composer.json file with the file from Magento 2.3.2.
Then I declared already installed third-party packages in the require section of the file:

"require": {
	"magento/product-community-edition": "2.3.2",
	"ebizmarts/mailchimp-lib": "^3.0",
	"mageplaza/module-core": "^1.3",
	"mageplaza/magento-2-seo-extension": "^2.1",
	"mageplaza/module-sitemap": "^1.0",
	"owebia/magento2-module-advanced-shipping": "^2.6.3",
	"tradefurniturecompany/report": "*",
	"tradefurniturecompany/core": "*"

Step 2

rm -rf composer.lock
composer update
bin/magento setup:upgrade
bin/magento cache:enable

Step 3
