Can I skip versions when upgrading?

Very basic question; can I skip versions when upgrading?

I am still on 4.0.0. Can I just upgrade to 4.2.1 or should I go from version to version?

Thanks @joeyk for answering!

You fine, you can go from one version to the other unless you jump a major version.
4.0 - 4.2.1 is okay.
If you upgrade from 2.16 for example you’d need to go to 3.0 and then to 4.0
The reason is, that sometimes you also need to upgrade php and mariadb gradually.
