Exactly what I was going to say.

I tend to use the newer Live USB with a separate persistent /home, and
I routinely rewrite the rest of the Live image by using
'livecd-creator' to create new images with all the updates
pre-installed.  That gives me the updates, and I can blow away the
other persistence without missing it too much as long as I keep any
personal defaults in my home directory.
