Recommended upgrade derailleur and shifter for 2019 RadMini??

My derailleur "blew up" this weekend, just sort of separated into pieces while riding down the road.  I've never had great luck with the stock system - its never reliably worked in all gears even after professional service, and its always taken a lot of force to shift even after changing out the cable, shifter, and derailleur with new stock components.

Looking to upgrade to something higher quality - any recommendations?

Should I upgrade just the shifter/cable/derailleur, or also the front ring and the casette?

Help appreciated.  I'm capable of doing the install myself, but hoping to get a list of what I'll need based on a proven recommendation.

Maybe you should stop by a bike shop and ask for recommendations or help.  I do not believe that changing your shifter is difficult but you need to be certain that you have one that works for you and your bike.  I did take a look at options on amazon and found this:

As you can see this is not an expensive upgrade but I would make sure you picked the best one for your riding style,
