You can use a upgrade install for this.

Yes you can, simply download the Windows Media Creation Tool. When you run it, choose "Upgrade this PC Now" rather than "Create installation media for another PC"

 

Or to be on the safer side, Create the installation media first on a USB and once that's done, run the tool again and try the upgrade so if anything happens in the upgrade process that prevents you from booting you can always do a clean install.
