< Neon | BionicUpgrades Please add your test results: Name Date What edition of KDE Neon did you have installed? Is your computer booting with BIOS or UEFI? Is secureboot enabled? Success or problems? Comments HD Scania 7 June 2020 KDE neon 5.18.90 testing UEFI No Dead due to the Qt 5.9 deps being acciddentially installed too, just after an APT full upgrade, and i DON’T get at all where the Qt 5.9 deps are come from; And startx has reported that the X server is ‘‘I/O error’’, which has NEVER been elsewhere on the same laptop Boudewijn Rempt 19-06-2018 KDE neon 15.12 UEFI Yes Success No Problems Kenny D 19-06-2018 KDE neon User UEFI No Partial Success Bionic it seems deprecated encrypted homes so you won't be able to login graphically after upgrading, installing encryptfs-utils semi fixes this however it is apparently not very reliable now https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ecryptfs-utils/+bug/1756840 https://askubuntu.com/questions/1029249/how-to-encrypt-home-on-ubuntu-18-04 27-06-27: not found any issues with encrypted home yet everything seems to be working ok so far 29-06-2018: now noticed this error in dmesg on each boot, still seems to mount home ok though, anyone else seeing this? [ 33.378048] Could not find key with description: [01521d6d47952845] [ 33.378067] process_request_key_err: No key [ 33.378068] Could not find valid key in user session keyring for sig specified in mount option: [01521d6d47952845] [ 33.378089] One or more global auth toks could not properly register; rc = [-2] [ 33.378089] Error parsing options; rc = [-2] 28-06-2018: also just to note that release is currently broken, so if you haven't updated since yesterday you might want to avoid doing so for a bit 29-06-2018: bionic usable again 25-07-2018: switched over from release to user with no problems Clay Weber 25-6-2018 KDE Neon User UEFI Secure boot: NO Upgrade installed successfully Same problem as Kenny D above - I have an encrypted /home- Could not login to desktop, installing ecrypts-utils fixed the issue. No other issues found Louis Weddall 2018-06-25 KDE Neon User Edition 5.13 UEFI No Upgrade installed successfully Xenial repositories are disabled, yet still listed in Discover, which could cause some confusion. René Fritz 2018-06-28 KDE Neon Developer Stable Edition Bios No Upgrade installed successfully no problems, except that in /etc/lsb-release is DISTRIB_ID=neon (again) instead of DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu which breaks adding a ppa with add-apt-repository Jakeir 2018-06-28 Neon User Edition - KDE 5.13.1 UEFI YES Upgrade successful updating packages after upgrade caused the same issues as seen by Kenny D with encryptfs-util and 'Could not find a valid key in user session keyring for sig specified in mount option' - Currently unusable. 2018-07-01 - completed another apt upgrade and reboot previous issues all resolved. Lukas N 2018-06-30 Neon User Edition UEFI No Upgrade successful btrfs-progs (formerly btrfs-tools?) was not installed. Kostiantyn Rybnikov 2018-07-05 Neon User Edition BIOS Secureboot not enabled Problems After upgrade finished and asked me to reboot I am seeing "Could not start kdeinit5. Check your installation" and nothing works. Photo: https:// photos.app.goo.gl/nw9G7iUeBEjx6BQg9 Thibaut FRANCOIS 2018-07-07 Neon User Edition UEFI Secureboot not enabled Problems In the boot's beginning, I had the message "error, no symbol table". Fixed : I rebuilded grub on /etc/sdb and not /etc/sda, sda is my windows partition Like René, in /etc/lsb-release is DISTRIB_ID=neon (again) instead of DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu which breaks adding a ppa with add-apt-repository After upgrade and the reboot I am seeing "Could not start kdeinit5. Check your installation". Fixed: I purged the nvidia driver with apt (sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*) , and install nvidia-390 (sudo apt install nvidia-390) from oibaf/graphics-drivers/ppa (maybe the repository "graphics-drivers" would be sufficient, I don't know) Firefox and chromium didn't launch : "libwayland-egl.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory." Fixed: with "sudo apt-get install libwayland-egl1" (this library replace the libwayland-egl1-mesa) David B 2018-07-16 KDE Neon User Edition 5.13 BIOS No secure boot Successfully upgraded without issues Comments After upgrade system appears to be running KDE Neon Developers Edition Brian W 7/20/2018 Fresh install of Neon LTS 5.12 (on Virtualbox guest) BIOS No secure boot Successfully upgraded; no errors. Comments DISTRIB_ID in /etc/lsb-release is set for "neon". KDE Neon Developers Edition was installed instead of the LTS. Kenny D 2 2018-07-25 KDE Neon User Edition 5.13 BIOS No secure boot Successfully upgraded without issues, encrypted home still worked after upgrade Kenny D 3 2018-07-25 KDE Neon User Edition 5.13 BIOS No secure boot Successfully upgraded without issues XYQuadrat 2018-07-28 KDE Neon Developer Edition BIOS No secure boot Success, needed to re-enable the neon PPA's and edit /etc/lsb-release to resolve dependency issues - that's it Thanks for your hard work :) Kenny D 4 2018-07-29 KDE Neon User Edition 5.13 UEFI Insecure boot Couldn't login after upgrade due to missing ecryptfs-utils, has something changed in the last few days? Ivan Safonov 2018-08-04 bionic-early-access 20180804-0922-amd64.iso UEFI secureboot is disabled Touchpad is not working, external mouse cursor moving too slow Laptop Dell Latitude 7490. Fixed by removing /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/41-evdev.conf link from neon-settings package. Lengau Date: 2018-08-18 What edition of KDE Neon did you have installed? KDE neon User Edition 5.13 Is your computer booting with BIOS or UEFI? UEFI Is secureboot enabled? No Success or problems? [Desktop computer] Had to manually fix Nvidia drivers due to using ~graphics-drivers PPA. Everything else seems to be functional so far. Comments Ryan R 2018-08-21 Installed an August version of 16.04 NEON User edition computer booting with UEFI Is secureboot enabled? Don't think so Success with problems Nvidia driver installed from PPA didn't work on boot, manually reinstalled, everything else seems to work. bootsplash no longer appears but this is a minor issue. Martin S. 2018-08-04 KDE neon User Edition 5.13 installed Kubuntu 14.04 upgraded to Kubuntu 16.04 upgraded to KDE neon User Edition 16.04 (by adding the neon.list file) BIOS No secureboot enabled Success (after some fixes) Comments: I did not have neon-desktop installed, so the neon bionic upgrade notification did not appear after changing /etc/update-manager/meta-release. Solution: install neon-desktop and restart the upgrade. I did have some changes in the neon.list file, so the upgrade was not able to change the file correctly. Solution: Revert the neon.list file to the xenial iso version and restart the upgrade. I had problems with the screen lock after leaving the upgrade running unattended for a while. I could not log in anymore to finish the upgrade (the screen stays blank). Solution: run "loginctl unlock-sessions" from a console (Ctrl-Alt-F1), switch back (Ctrl-Alt-F7) and finish the upgrade. Clay Weber 5-9-2018 KDE Neon User UEFI Secure boot: NO Upgrade installed successfully Same problem as Kenny D above (again!) - I have an encrypted /home Could not login to desktop, installing ecrypts-utils fixed the issue. No other issues found, again. Jason P 2018-09-06 What edition of KDE Neon did you have installed? KDE Neon User Is your computer booting with BIOS or UEFI? BIOS Is secureboot enabled? No Success or problems? Success eventually (I think) Comments I had many packages/ppa's installed that were blocking the upgrade. I ended up blindly uninstalling things and getting back to almost stock before the upgrade finally started. Towards the end of the upgrade i got the error 2018-09-07 07:44:12,311 ERROR got an error from dpkg for pkg: 'python3-distupgrade': 'installed python3-distupgrade package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1' the subsequent dpkg-reconfigure -a that the installer said it would do appeared to fixed it though. I needed to run an apt autoremove to remove all the old packages Charles (VINNY) Wright 9-6-2018 Neon-LTS BIOS no Secure boot Successful and as expected I had no worry's , the Neon-LTS is in a BTRFS file system so snapshot @ and @home and I have a restore point . it took 6 hours and 2006 upgrades . Charles (VINNY) Wright 9-11-2018 Neon-user BIOS no secure boot Successful and as expected this one was on an old Acer aspire-V5-431 duel core pentium CPU @1.30GHz 4GB RAM and works vary well . using less than 1GB RAM even when watching full screen youtube vid. :) same as above with the file system BTRFS Denis Karpovskii 12-09-2018 Neon User Edition UEFI Secure Boot disabled Success, no problems (this time) This is the second time I upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04. When I was upgrading the first time (a week before) I have clicked "Cancel" when the installation program warned me that installation can take a long time. After that Discover started to crash on every launch. Reboot solved the problem (needed to start "neon-preview-upgrade" again). Secure boot is disabled because I install latest unsigned mainline kernel to get my touchpad and LAN working (Lenovo Ideapad 330). No problems with it besides that. Martin Moen 2018-09-12 Neon User Edition UEFI Secure Boot disabled Mounting of drives in Plasma is still affected by kde bug no. 370975 (see bugs.kde.org for details). Otherwise, everything appears to be running very smoothly. Marcus Larborg 2018-09-15 Neon User Edition UEFI Secure boot disabled Success!!! This was a recent install with not so many applications before the upgrade. Roman Gilg 2018-09-19 Neon Dev Unstable UEFI Secure Boot disabled Problems but upgrade was possible neon-preview-upgrade was not found. Had to install the respective package distro-release-notifier manually. That's because neon-desktop was missing (this conflicted on my system with xserver-xorg-*-hwe-16.04 packages, which I could replace with xserver-xorg-* packages, then neon-desktop could be installed again). Afterwards the upgrade went smoothly. Minor: In the upgrader tool I later on opened the terminal output but I couldn't get the output window to follow the output (i.e. scroll down with new lines of output). mshapiro 09242018 bionic upgrade UEFI No secureboot Upgrade installed and ran well, but blocks installation of virtualbox and wine. Changing the latest version of libblkid1 to an earlier one allowed wine installation The latest virtualbox preview installed, but the official 5.2.18 install fails with unresolvable dependencies. The main problem seems to be absent 32bit libraries on the neon upgrade ppa site. Comments StepD 2018-09-24 Neon Dev Stable UEFI (with renamed grub bootloader due to BIOS bug( Secure Boot disabled No problems encountered so far; third party PPAs properly disabled Using LUKS, and BTRFS root and home (this is my experimental machine..)
