To fix the issue, I downloaded network manager from the focal release along with its dependencies and installed them as a set. No other issues to report (so far).

Update: I tried to reinstall digikam but received dependency errors (see below).


Same thing for me with à Lenovo laptop.

If you install the focal preview (20200716-0945) on a clean partition you can install Digikam, it is the 7.0.0 version from neon.
If you update a bionic partition you get the 4.6.4.0 dfsg version of Digikam !!! with dependency errors.

Interesting, perhaps version 7.0.0 recently became available. I will see if an upgrade from my locally compiled copy of digikam is possible (or if I have to uninstall it first).

Edit: Well, upgrading turned out to be a bad option. After cleaning up the remains from the failed upgrade, I was able to install digikam 7.0.0 without errors.

I tried an upgrade today, following the recommended steps, and had an error in step 7.5. After clicking 2-3 times to the "keep" button, the installer told me it had an error with firefox (didn't tell me much more), and closing that window the installation canceled and told me the system may be unstable.

I have tried a manual apt upgrade and the problem looks like to be that apt couldn't find a '/usr/bin/firefox', so I made a symlink and then the apt upgrade works. But now I try to execute the `neon-preview-upgrade` installer again but nothing works. How can I continue the process, or reset it to start again?

After upgrading to 20.04 LTS as per the instructions, there was no volume control icon on the panel, and no mute icon on individual media app tabs. I had to install 'KDE Plasma Desktop - Audio Volume'. When I rebooted there was the volume control and mute icons. I wonder why it wasn't installed by default...

So, here is my report from Upgrade to 20.04.

Preparatory work:
    Remove alle packages from PPA's and disable PPA's
    Remove alle really old packages that i known
    Update to latest HWE with actual nvidia driver

Starting the Upgrade:
    Firefox Upgrade failed, Unknown Error
    The whole Update was failed with no Error message (WTF where are the Update logs?) @99%
    Update process finished manually
    Autoremove first bunch of packages

After Reboot:
First look was ok. So upgrade generally successful.

List what didn't work after upgrade and how i fixed it:
    Really a lot of Packages under local and old in synaptic (about 50). I was able to remove almost all packages. Some had to be downgraded.
    After Purge Firefox and reinstall the programm, it was working fine again, same with preload. (Ubuntu Core)
    A strange midisequenzer was installed during the upgrade, this blocks the whole soundsystem, also minidlan was installed again
    Akonadi did only work after Upgrade with Postgresql Backend (Config must of course be adjusted)
    If you have an Active Directory/Kerberos auth, local sudoers config will be completly ignored (Ubuntu Core) LDAP sudo and Kerberos sudo working fine again
    Zoommeeting freezes the entire desktop for 30 seconds then it crashes (Ubuntu Core)
    Only Xrender Compositing works, because the other option give the whole desktop only in a deep blue color, (Ubuntu Core) Don't know if this on a fresh installation works, maybe depending also on the latest Upgrade to nvidia 440.
    And yes deborphan is your best friend.

Now everything is working fine. No Problem with Networkmanager, Widgets, or steam. it feels like the system needs more CPU and graphics power. But that could also be due to the simultaneous graphics driver update.

What was annoying was already in version 18.04 that the font size of GTK applications does not match that of QT. This is definitely a problem with a resolution of 5120x1440. But that's a different topic.

Hope this helps a little bit for the Update process. Very Thanks :) :) :)

Clean install. Strange issue I've never seen before. When updating or installing software via the Terminal using pkcon, all the packages download but then the Terminal hangs on "running". Nothing happens. Then when I force closed the Terminal, all the packages then install. This doesn't happen in Kubuntu 20.04, so I assume it's a Neon bug.

If you have problems with digikam, you have to remove all akonadi packages, there is one fauly package. After remove that, you can install digikam normaly, also kdepim works perfectly after.

Had moltiple instances of gconf2 not beeing installed (trigger problem) and one time withapt-dipkg-instal-dTbehh. Upgrade software claimed that upgrade was failed in a first dialog at the end of the procedure ("your system may be broken"), and than that was succesfull in a immediate second dialog.
Rebooted and everything seems to work.

I have an Unstable installation that I use for testing and is pretty messy, it can be sacrificed without any loss of anything.
So I upgraded that. No issues. Network applet was not removed. Volume control is in the panel - though it was muted on first reboot.

I did no thorough testing, but all basic stuff (Konsole, Dolphin, Kate...) work as expected. Setting are preserved.
Theme, conky, widgets, all there.
No issues found.

I don't quite know how long it took. I left it running (downloading took about a minute), and I came back in about one hour.
It was at "Remove obsolete packages?" It said "this may take several hours", so I said No. It rebooted and was done.
Kernel was 5.4.0-42 before upgrade, and still is.
