Upgrades to 18.04 are working well but maintaining twice as many builds as normal is taking its toll on our time and team of guinea pig packagers. Neon on 16.04 (xenial) base will reach End of Life on Monday. Please update to 18.04 base to continue receiving updates.

hm, i am not really happy with the update.
loading times >1min, kdeinit5 is crashing when saving, moving files, writer is not sending attachments to Thunderbird anymore.

I can live with the boot time, but that kdeinit segfault drive me nuts. Its not happening with a new user, can anyone give me a hint what to repair ?

Hi Akela,
Sometimes I also have a delay at start up because of the apt.daily update but not often.
I also have troubles when attaching files with Writer, but I could not resolve this by now.
You should think to install kdeinit5-dbg package in order to debug the problem.
This link have instructions about this:
https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_an ... ux_Mint.29

After all, you could try to post in a different section in the KDE forum.
Another site to report this could be:
https://dot.kde.org/2018/09/26/kde-neon ... nic-beaver

Regards,
Akela

Thank you, man, at least i am not alone :D
I have already installed kinit-dbgsym, i think from the error message dialog itself you can do that. But, what kdeinit5 is throwing out, is of no means to me. i made a bug report but i think its in the wrong place because first it happended with kdenlive, after that i had the same with dolphin.
Btw, the second link of yours, is pointing back to here ;)

Trying GUI upgrade ends up with this error message:
Code: Select all
E:Problem executing scripts APT::Update::Post-Invoke-Success 'if /usr/bin/test -w /var/cache/app-info -a -e /usr/bin/appstreamcli; then appstreamcli refresh-cache > /dev/null; fi', E:Sub-process returned an error code

and then aborts.

Trying command:
Code: Select all
sudo do-release-upgrade

Then, it says maybe a network fail, and restore previous system with the same error message as GUI:
Code: Select all
E:Problem executing scripts APT::Update::Post-Invoke-Success 'if
/usr/bin/test -w /var/cache/app-info -a -e /usr/bin/appstreamcli;
then appstreamcli refresh-cache > /dev/null; fi', E:Sub-process
returned an error code

It's hard to believe in a network fail, because before and after this network is working very fine.

Any sugestions?

Boot is very slow,(>1min from ssd) and i have no clue what to do about that
Kdeconnect showing phone connected but is not working
Triple screen with one blackscreen after every boot
gimp link from startmenu is starting with wine (have never installed windows gimp)
(that i can fix myself) ;)
