Flash the new version and reset to factory defaults afterward, you are moving to many versions up to not reset.
 
welcome to the forum.

Possibly you don’t need to carry out a reset to factory default settings (RFDS). But, you don’t know if yoir router has ever had an RFDS or, if it did, when it had it. If you don’t do one now, every time you have a problem you will wonder if that is the cause. Moreover, you don’t know if the previous owner had the web interface exposed to the WAN and perhaps the router was hacked?

At some stage you will have to carry out an RFDS, possibly because Merlin will release an update that requires it. So you might as well get familiar with the process.

Bite the bullet, start with a known good clean router, and follow L&LD’s Guide without taking shortcuts:
