[ndnSIM] Upgrading to ndnSIM 2.3?

Hi John

Just deploy another VM and install everything from scratch.

Caution: Unlike ns-3, ndnSIM does not maintain backwards compatibility
across versions. Your scenarios and patches to the simulator itself will
need non-trivial porting work.
As long as you keep ndnSIM inside a VM, there should be no security concern
that requires you to upgrade. Thus, you can weigh between the benefit of
getting new features and bugfixes and the workload of porting the scenarios
and patches.

Yours, Junxiao
