Mint 19.1 Update Manager refuses to upgrade to Mint 19.2 on desktop

Post by wpshooter » Sat Aug 17, 2019 8:52 am

Am trying to upgrade my desktop computer from 19.1 to 19.2 using the upgrade path that is shown
under edit options on update manager. However, when I get to the point of actually applying the
upgrade the APPLY button is not active. I ran thru this same upgrade on my laptop computer and it
worked just fine.

Any idea as to why the apply button is not available ?

Thanks.

Don't ask me how, but I finally got it to work. Best I can figure, I clicked on the apply button several times (even though, as I said, it was
greyed out) and finally a prompt for the admin password popped up and it was off to the races.

Am probably going to do a complete reinstall from scratch with USB key of 19.2 when I get a chance. The reason I did not do that in the first
place is because I am using a Brother printer and boy is that thing a bear to get configured and working on one of these Linux machines - have
to jump thru all kind of hoops to get it to work !!!
