deki999,

In what way did Mint offer you an upgrade? And from what to what did it offer to upgrade?

Were you using the Mint update or some other method? Have you changed the default repositories?

800 mb? When you update Mint KDE for the first time after installation, the amount of transference is approximately 400Mb.. :roll: There aren't another 400mb of updates...

...it sounds like a KDE upgrade that went wrong.
Press: Ctrl + Alt + F1and try to login, if that works run:
Code: Select all
apt update -f
and
Code: Select all
apt upgrade -f
from a tty?
That might do the trick.

very interesting.
I did the fresh install.
it is ok.
I tried upgrade again, and after a while I get the message:
You do not have Ubuntu desktop, Kubuntu desktop, XFCE desktop...etc.
Please install one of them so I can continue with upgrade...
BUG OR WHAT !!!

anyway DO NOT UPGRADE !!!
it is Ubuntu upgrade.
wait for Mint release...

You should only update with mintUpdae, that's what it's for! :wink:
And whatever you do, DON'T check the box "Dist upgrade" :!:
