Upgrade Ubuntu 23.10 to 24.04 20240525 All went smoothly. But on reboot into one account it failed to start up but was okay on moving to Wayland though that may impact on Zoom or Teams or Skype — to be tested. Perhaps a Gnome Extension issue?

Upgrade Ubuntu 23.04 to 23.10 20231021 All went smoothly. Zoom install using snap is required for Ubuntu 23.10: sudo snap install zoom-client --edge.

Upgrade Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04 20220827 Update from Ubutnu 20.04 to Ubuntu 22.04. Began by backing up the home folder to a spare hard disk. Should really not be anything requiring backup as we are keeping project work on git repositories, configurations in a git repository, and project and important files on a nextcloud server.

All went smoothly.

Upgrade Ubuntu 19.10 to 20.04 20200502 Update from Ubutnu 19.10 to 20.04. Began by checking home folder for anything to back up first. Should really not be anything - keeping project work on git repositories, configurations in a git repository, and project and important files on a nextcloud server.

$ wajig update; wajig distupgrade; wajig install update-manager-core
$ sudo reboot
$ sudo do-release-upgrade -d

All went smoothly.

Upgrade 19.04 to 19.10 20191026 The problem with the encrypted swap continued, but worse. On exit from initramfs then noted the same message and had to wait for that to time out. The following exit worked.

A solution was found to uninstall cryptsetup-initramfs (version 2:2.2.0-3ubuntu1). Also removed the crypt entries from /etc/fstab and /etc/crypttab.

Upgrade 18.04 to 19.04 20191026 After sitting on 18.04 LTS for a while the decision was made to upgrade to the latest release 19.10. Using the graphical update manager the release option was changed from LTS and an upgrade to 19.04 was offered and proceeded with. After the reboot the boot process failed with cryptsetup: Waiting for encrypted source device /swapfile…. Not a good sign. The boot process reverts to initramfs prompt. Typing exit resumes the boot process which is then successful. Various attempts to fix have not succeeded yet.
