Update Python on Ubuntu 22.04

Ok, so you have a fresh installation of Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish), and you would like to update the default Python 3.10 that comes preinstalled in Ubuntu 22.04 to the latest version. It seems trivial, as you think that you can just uninstall the old version and install the new one. But it is not that simple. The problem is that Ubuntu 22.04 uses python 3.10 for some of its internal tools, and if you uninstall it, you will break your system.
