Hi, I run this two commands.
I am using KDE Neon with plasmashell 5.13, which works fine.

jochoa@jochoapc:~$ pkcon refresh

jochoa@jochoapc:~$ sudo pkcon update -y
[sudo] password for jochoa:

No hay paquetes que necesiten actualizarse a versiones más recientes.

There are no recent packages to upgrade. So, we have to wait.

I've just noticed that testing upgrades to Bionic is now open:

Hi Alexsid,
I appreciate your post and the advice given into it will not encourage me to try bionic after it becomes stable.

Hi!

I just want to share my results concerning the upgrade. I cannot add anything here https://community.kde.org/Neon/BionicUpgrades/Testing as I am not a valid wiki-user.

02/07/2018
KDE neon 15.13.2
UEFI
No
Success

-> Comment: Had to install update-manger as it was not installed by default.
Update process with some minor notifications coming from update-manager. Complaining about neon-desktop pkg.

less main.log | grep -e"ERROR" gives this:

Code: Select all
018-07-02 11:30:33,742 ERROR got an error from dpkg for pkg: 'neon-desktop': 'dependency problems - leaving unconfigured'
2018-07-02 11:30:33,743 ERROR got an error from dpkg for pkg: 'neon-desktop': 'dependency problems - leaving unconfigured'

2018-07-02 11:53:02,235 ERROR got an error from dpkg for pkg: 'neon-desktop': 'dependency problems - leaving unconfigured'
2018-07-02 11:53:07,818 ERROR Exception during pm.DoInstall()
2018-07-02 11:55:11,474 ERROR SystemError from cache.commit(): installArchives() failed
2018-07-02 11:55:11,475 ERROR found exception: 'E:Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1), E:Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)'
2018-07-02 11:55:15,212 ERROR got error from PostInstallScript ./xorg_fix_proprietary.py (g-exec-error-quark: Failed to execute child process "./xorg_fix_proprietary.py" (No such file or directory) (8))


These errors showed up in the upgrade-GUI as human readable messages during the installation and could be ignored.

After the installation finished an apt update upgrade combo gave me following

Code: Select all
Probieren Sie »apt --fix-broken install«, um dies zu korrigieren.
Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
 neon-desktop : Hängt ab von: distro-release-notifier ist aber nicht installiert
                Hängt ab von: ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt ist aber nicht installiert
                Empfiehlt: neon-apport ist aber nicht installiert
E: Unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten. Versuchen Sie »apt --fix-broken install« ohne Angabe eines Pakets (oder geben Sie eine Lösung an).


sudo apt --fix-broken install fixed the problem and a upgrade could be done via command.

All seems to be working as expected.

Cheers!

The only issue I faced was Mesa rendered utterly broken, but that's probably due to the X-Swat PPA I had enabled. So, if you have this PPA in your system, ppa-purge it before upgrading. After fixing that I had no other problems, everything works as expected.

[SOLVED] - I had to reinstall update-manager in order to restore a corrupt file

I updated /etc/update-manager/meta-release to use https://metadata.neon.kde.org/changelogs/meta-release and https://metadata.neon.kde.org/changelog ... elease-lts but update-manager will not find the Bionic distro upgrade after logging out and then logging back in.

/etc/update-manager/release-upgrades is set to "Prompt=lts" but still the Bionic upgrade was not found.

I'm not finding any info in /var/log/syslog so either I have a broken update-manager (reinstalling it did nothing) or I'm missing something else. I've googled for a solution but couldn't find one.

Hello,

I upgraded Neon to 18.04 version, but since the update, I don't have neon upgrade (plasma, kde frameworks, etc.), only the ubuntu upgrades.
It's normal ? Did i miss something ?

Thanks ! :)

Only that Neon has not upgraded to 18.04 which explains why you have "missing upgrades".

And another information about Neon 18.04 : there is a dependency problem with kmail.
-> After updated a PC with neon 16.04 and kmail installed : no problem.
-> With a new PC and a fresh install of neon 16.04 without kmail, after the update to 18.04, I installed kmail, I have an error when I launch mail.
In the diagnostic, there is :
Test 6: ERROR
--------
MySQL server default configuration not found.
Details: The default configuration for the MySQL server was not found or was not readable. Check your Akonadi installation is complete and you have all required access rights.

I found a solution on this discussion : viewtopic.php?f=309&t=152324
It seems there is missing a dependency whit maria-db server. Launch this command "sudo apt-get install mariadb-common mariadb-server akonadi-server akonadi-backend-mysql kdepim-runtime kontact kmail" fixed the problem.

Are we ever going to see the 18.04 upgrade for KDE Neon? It's going on 4 months. 18.04.1 has already been released..

Yes, but see:

Nice, but that doesn't impact very much whether a Neon -> Neon upgrade is QA'd well enough to be recommended and turned on.

I do not understand what you've upgraded, Neon? Kubuntu? Upgraded to git stable version? If you've upgraded to a stable version of git you could have installed it safely with .iso image

I just followed the instructions from here:

https://community.kde.org/Neon/BionicUpgrades

Am using the stable version.
