LM 20 Mate (Ulyana) Upgrade Issue

Post by phantom07 »

Hi,

Though I've been using Linux Mint for 2 yr+ now, you can say I'm a newbie Linux knowledge-wise (blame it on LM for being so simple and easy-to-use). I was waiting for this LM 20 release. My current LM is 19.3 LTS Mate. So I've been waiting for 20 (Ulyana). Though I can download the new version... what I was waiting for, is the Update Manager upgrade option. This is how I have been upgrading my LM right from LM 18... without any problem or hick-ups whatsoever. Within a week the UM would announce the upgrade and I just took a backup and started the upgrade... it was that simple. But (more than a week now) there are no signs of any upgrade. Also from the terminal, the upgrade check gives the following message:

$ sudo do-release-upgrade
Checking for a new Ubuntu release
There is no development version of an LTS available.
To upgrade to the latest non-LTS develoment release
set Prompt=normal in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades.

Yesterday I lost my patience and tried to upgrade by changing the repository file "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list" by changing the 'tricia' to ''ulyana' and 'bionic' to 'focal'.
as mentioned in this article:
https://www.linuxtechi.com/how-to-upgra ... 20-ulyana/

The result was a disaster. The upgrade started by ended abruptly giving a lot of errors. Some of them are listed below:

=================================

=================================

Don't know where these errors are coming from as I checked for dependency errors and dpkg erros it didn't show any errors. Also some strange Swap space error... even tried removing swap partition.

Never I have faced such difficulty with upgrade right from LM 18. Since I always keep my system up-to-date... I used to just start the update and go to sleep. Next morning voila! New LM is there. This time full of errors... and finally when I got LM 20 I had lost the GUI (don't know why). Luckily I had the TimeShift backup in place which saved the day for me.

So I just wanted to know if the upgrade has been released. Or what is the problem? where am I going wrong? Why are there so many errors whereas till version LM 19.3 it was so smooth?

Awaiting your response.

That's hardly surprising when you follow random instructions by random people on the internet. The upgrade path hasn't been announced yet, and the situation is described in the release announcement:
Upgrade instructions:

Announcements will be made in July with instructions on how to upgrade from Linux Mint 19.3.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

Thanks, @Kadaitcha Man for your prompt response.

Strange though I've gone thru the release notes, it seems I completely missed it.

Seems it's taking a bit longer this time for the update path to be announced... any idea around when can we expect the same.

Hi All,

Today I again tried for Linux Mint 20 upgrade after it showed in my system report. This time I followed the instructions given in the Linux Mint forum Blogs as instructed in the System Report(link given below).
https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2485

It runs the almost 2 hr upgrade quite smoothly but gets stuck at the same place again and again. Refer the installation error below:

Cannot understand where/why it's getting stuck. Urgently require a solution for the same. This is the 3rd time I'm getting stuck at the same place.

Awaiting your response.

Re: LM 20 Mate (Ulyana) Upgrade Issue

Post by phantom07 »

Finally, I could make it work. Almost fighting for 24h now.

The swap space error was due to some wrong entry in "/etc/fstab". Had to delete and reconfigure the swap partition too and then made the correct entry in stab. There were other minor hiccups too with network-manager, wireless network and few other packages. Got over them.

Long work... but ultimately paid off. Feeling happy... attaching the welcome screen. :mrgreen:

Any suggestions since there were so many hiccups, how to ensure that everything is fine now and I'm not missing anything important. I did run the following commands multiple times.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
apt-get -f upgrade
sudo apt-get -f upgrade
apt-get -f dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get -f dist-upgrade
sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt autoclean
sudo apt clean
sudo apt-get --fix-broken install
sudo apt-get --fix-broken upgrade
sudo apt-get --fix-broken update
sudo apt-get --fix-broken missing
sudo apt install -f
sudo dpkg --configure -a

Now getting clean results. Anything I'm missing out or gave not checked. Request the experts to comment please.

B/R.
