    I have an Acer Iconia One tablet, the model number is B3-A20. It is running Android 5.1 currently and I would like to upgrade to Android 7.

    Is this possible to do manually myself? If possible can someone explain the steps required? I have no problems losing any default Acer apps or losing any Acer specific setup.

    It is really annoying that I am still on Android 5.1 and there have been many releases since then...

    Thank you!

    Welcome.

    You'll need a 3rd-party ROM to do this, if one is even available. Some devices were not popular enough to warrant someone doing development of a ROM for them. Admittedly, this is one of the most frustrating aspects of Android - poor ongoing update support from the device manufacturers, even for the monthly security updates (look at Samsung's track record on that with the GS7). The only way to be assured you'll get major OS releases and monthly patches for 2 and 3 years (respectively) is to get a Nexus or Pixel device.
