How to upgrade 20.04.X to get all that 20.04.4 goodness
es flag

I'm looking for some advice on how I can upgrade 100's of Ubuntu 20.04.X installations to get all that 20.04.4 goodness.

First some background:

I manage an environment where we have 100's of Ubuntu 20.04.X installations. Up until now, we've just lived with the fact that they are using lvmpipe instead of the built-in/onboard Intel graphics. Anyways for poops and giggles I decided to download the late ...

Replacing snap with flatpak. What will happen when I upgrade?
gq flag

I'm considering replacing snap with flatpak. What happens during a version upgrade of Ubuntu? Is the Ubuntu upgrade programmed to reinstall snap and what is the risk of pinning or holding snap from being reinstalled?

I would like to avoid having to purge snap on every upgrade and don't want to risk ending up with a broken system because some key system component has become a snap package.

Where does snapd put the files for install snap apps?
cn flag

After installing Kubuntu 20.04, I found that I had to use snap to obtain a current version of GIMP -- which I did.

Now I'm looking ahead to needing to "upgrade" in a couple years, and it occurs to me to wonder if snapd put the installed files for GIMP in under my / folder (which will be reformatted, then refilled with Kubuntu 24.04, I presume) or in a hidden folder under my /home/[user] folder, w ...

Ubuntu update error: The following packages have unmet dependencies

Hit there,

am using Ubuntu version: Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS

Doing sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade


You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libc6-dev : Depends: libc6 (= 2.31-0ubuntu9.7) but 2.31-0ubuntu9.2 is installed

E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Failure to upgrade Ubuntu due to package removal failure of 'systemd-shim'

Every time a 'partial upgrade' or 'normal upgrade' of the Ubuntu OS, it is failing every time because of the failure of the systemd-shim package.

Even after I manually execute the following command (per the instructions post-failure) and retry the upgrade process:

apt autoremove systemd-shim
