Upgrade Ubuntu 23.04 to 23.10 20231222 Utilising command line do-release-upgrade. Update went smoothly. Some Gnome Shell extensions don’t support Gnome 45 (sound-output-device-chooser, wireguard-indicator, and workrave).

Upgrade Ubuntu 22.10 to 23.04 20230425 Utilising command line do-release-upgrade to Lunar Lobster. Both updates went smoothly. Some Gnome Shell extensions don’t support Gnome 44 (sound-output-device-chooser, wireguard-indicator, and workrave). Trialled Wayland. X2Go could not display. Revert to Ubuntu on X11. Perhaps Exec=env QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb x2goclient in ~/.local/share/applications/X2GoAgent.desktop (to be tested). Flutter issues look like cached paths. Re-clone and mostly working again. The linode-cli stopped working. Had to add --break-system-packages to pip3 install to get pip working and linode-cli working again.

Upgrade Ubuntu 22.04 to 22.10 20230425 Utilising command line do-release-upgrade to Kinetic Kudu as a pathway to upgrading to the recently released 23.04. Got a message that the upgrade has aborted because it needs 262M on ‘/boot’ which is 98.4M more than currently available. A few old kernel removals fixed that and restarted the upgrade. Then it noted that blender gimp resolvconf vlc zoom will be removed.

Upgrade Ubuntu 21.10 to 22.04 20220430 Use do-release-upgrade to Jammy Jellyfish. Initial No space left on device from mkinitramfs. It sorted itself out after some manual update/upgrades. Zoom background focus froze. Flutter build failing. Fixed after moving to manual (not snap) install. Display powersave blanks but does not turn off display. xset dpms force off okay. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-settings-daemon/+bug/1971434. Totem failed to play videos until gstreamer1.0-vaapi was removed.

Upgrade Ubuntu 21.04 to 21.10 20211021 Use do-release-upgrade to Impish Indri. Wayland would not start so reverted to Ubuntu on Xorg. Updated GNOME shell extensions (dash-to-panel, frippery move clock, open weather, panel date format). The workrave extension is not working until an update to it. Wayland works after removing some very old (1990’s) DISPLAY environment variable manipulation in .bashrc. Screen capture software (SimpleScreenRecorder and OBS) doesn’t work with Wayland.

Upgrade Ubuntu 20.10 to 21.04 20210615 Utilised command line do-release-upgrade with -d. Wayland would not start so reverted to Ubuntu on Xorg. Everything else seems just fine.

Upgrade Ubuntu 19.10 to 20.04 20200502 Utilised command line do-release-upgrade. No backup required since all of the project work and the system configurations are stored remotely in a git repository and documents are kept on a nextcloud server.

All went smoothly and after removing snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0 from /etc/default/grub sound was fully functional, including the microphones for the first time, noting that the required module snd_soc_skl_hda_dsp was loaded at boot.
