there's some problem, decided to update 3.8 and got

Install Updates Error log

Install Updates could not fetch the package cache information lists.
Go to https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/ and paste the log below into a new or existing thread for assistance.

Copy your post to a Support section and we'll tackle it there. In the meantime, reboot and try again. Make sure nothing else is open when you upgrade.

Thanks Jerry

- actually I think I can leave it alone now; before taking your advice to re-boot I tried the Updates again and it worked fine , 2 large updates (my browsers) successfully completed!

This is usually caused by having another update window opened, the drivers modification program opened or any other windows trying to install/remove packages.
Follow Jerry's advice and make sure all programs are 100% closed before upgrading.

  • Enjoying Linux Lite.

  • Linux Lite: 3.8 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Quad Core 1.6GHz

  • MEMORY: 8Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: AMD Radeon
Wow! Awesome that it was released a little ahead of schedule! (by hours, but still.) I'd been looking forward to this release for awhile, so had been counting down the days & hours!

Thanks @Jerry for all your work. It's looking great! I did it differently on each of my 2 machines:

1. Did a fresh install on laptop (my secondary machine). It went smoothly. After installation I also made a new user account for my son, who sometimes needs it for homework. It's looking great! He can customize his area without affecting mine.

One thing which confused me a little but not a big deal, is a message when installing via live USB "No caching mode found". Then there was a blank screen. If I'd been new to Linux installations I might have thought something had gone badly wrong, but I knew to just wait and see what happened. Sure enough, everything was fine - so if others happen to see this message on a fresh install from live USB, just wait during the blank screen and it will be OK, the install will happen. I LOVED the gorgeous professional-looking explainer slider screen while the install is going!

The polished appearance of the whole experience was great overall, but slightly marred by the white feather on a yellow background during startup, which I was rather hoping would have been replaced by the new LL wallpaper or something. I'd customized my last setup specifically to replace that, and looks like I'll be repeating the process in 3.8. Still, this is a VERY minor thing and only a matter of personal taste, not a right/wrong thing.

2. Installed via the upgrade path on my main machine. I'd fetched updates first before starting, as recommended.  I didn't set a restore point via Systemback, but I'd backed up my data on external hard drive (my data files are much more important to me than my OS customizations, so I was willing to take the risk of not having a restore point as long as I had data stored externally). In any case it was a moot point: the upgrade worked smoothly and flawlessly.

I did one really dumb thing: I had a LibreOffice file open during the upgrade process /* facepalm moment */. It was my Admin Notes file, because I had been jotting things down in it related to upgrading, but I should really have thought to close that window first. Luckily, after rebooting the new system, LibreOffice was able to detect and repair the corrupted file!! Awesome!! I got all of my Admin Notes back! Everything else was fine, I'd closed other files before starting, so nothing else was affected.

3. Donation sent.

Awesome work Jerry! Thanks for a great distro!
Using Linux Lite for everything now. I put it on my desktop and my laptop. Woohoo!

thanks - actually the upgrade was trouble free, as per my earlier post, it was my subsequent attempt at software update which failed initially, but now works fine.
sorry I've taken a lot of space here on this, I'll shut up now and enjoy some browsing!

Upgrades went fine on 4 machines (32 and 64 bit).

My SG33G5 (latest 3.8 upgrade) running and testing some of the tools I've put together overtime.

Sorry for seeming stupid and preferring Linux - I just don't know any better.

Did the upgrade on my Thinkpad X220 today. The whole operation (install updates (for 3.6), reboot, install upgrade, check for updates) took all of about 10-15 minutes. I already had TLP installed (highly recommended for Thinkpad users!) and Lite Tweaks recognized that.

Seamless on 3 machines.  Just followed upgrade guidelines.  One was from ll3.4 > ll3.8.
