I agree with Paul’s advice. I almost never upgrade an OS and I’ve been working this way for almost 30 years. Instead, I backup the system, wipe the drive, install the latest OS fresh, and then install the apps and settings I need. After you’ve done this a few times and are comfortable with the process it doesn’t take that long. I’m also convinced it takes less time then the slowdowns and troubleshooting spend on stuff like this.

I tend to agree with Adam that you have gotten a good long ride with your 2011. I find that even older MacbookPros sell well on sites like NextDoor or for trade in on many sites online. That should provide a nice down payment on a new machine.
