there is no need to reinstall the relay

you didn't say what OS you use but since you mentioned apt-get you are probably running debian or ubuntu.
In that case you might want to use the Torproject's Debian packages.
Setup instructions can be found here:
Using that repo will give you tor 0.3.5.8 (which is currently recommended)
> Other questions, can you confirm to me that in case of migration on another server the only key files to preserve are:
> - ed_master_id_secret_key
> - secret_id_key
> - secret_onion_key_ntor
simply copy the entire "keys" folder in your DataDirectory and make sure the filesystem permissions
are set properly and you should be fine.
