Re: mintupgrade check: "pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks" – How to diagnose & fix?

Re: Trouble with 4.15.0-20 kernel

Both issues are now resolved and updates were shipped to all 18.x point releases. Here's a summary of the situation. Problem #1: Starting with kernel 4.15.0-20, a new package was introduced called linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-20-generic. The update manager didn't know about it and didn't install it. O...

I'm not sure why you need to upgrade elfutils and libelf-dev manually?

Re: Trouble with 4.15.0-20 kernel

Quick update on the situation: We're working on an update which should prevent both issues from happening. We'll be testing this update until tomorrow before releasing it. If you have system snapshots in place and you want to give us a hand, it is available at: https://github.com/linuxmint/mintupdat...
