Just checked again for updates and updates were available.

One of the updates mentioned Linux Lite 4 series.

Updated,rebooted and then upgraded to Linux Lite 4.2.

A flawless upgrade.

This update was not available an hour ago....Just a question of waiting.

All I can think of is some folks aren't using the default Linux Lite repository, and are using their local one. Some may have to wait for their local to catch up.

This is a perfect opportunity to finally run the destructive hard drive test I was aiming at, then reinstall with the new version of Lite.

Did a fresh install of LL4.2 from a DVD with the ISO on it. Used the 'install release' from the boot screen. No errors after install. Ran updates. Selected software mirror. Checked my repository selection in Synaptic. All's good. The Beta was really good & the RC is the smoothest install of LL yet.

No problems to report here.
I clicked update this morning and noticed it was downloading a new version of the manual, that's when I remembered "today's the day".
Afterwards, I clicked on Lite Upgrade and in no time I was seeing the reboot prompt, I rebooted and -oh my gosh!!, everything looks the same! (which is great news because I didn't want to lose my customizations 8) [size=78%]).[/size]
[/size]
I confirmed I was running 4.2, and then rebooted and timed my boot time. It was exactly the same 15 seconds from cold boot, so I'm happy as a tornado on a trailer park  ;D
Pathological tweaker, I used to distro-hop (A LOT)   ...until I tried LinuxLite.

Sorry, 5 minutes later and I already have a question:

When I run  systemctl list-unit-files | grep enabled, I see some weird instances running:

network-manager.service                     enabled       
networkd-dispatcher.service                enabled       
networking.service                                enabled       
NetworkManager-dispatcher.service   enabled       
NetworkManager.service                       enabled   

So  network-manager.service  is different from  NetworkManager.service ??
I know they are, but why would someone need BOTH running?

And how about  networkd-dispatcher.service  and  NetworkManager-dispatcher.service ??
I know there's a small "d" letter there as well as the small caps/large caps, but why are both to be running?

I'm guessing one of the instances might be superseding the other or something like that??

I have been away from Linux Lite for awhile, exploring other distros (mainly to find one for my wife). I just did the upgrade, all went well. Nice job!

I finally got time to install LL 4.0 at the weekend, and now upgraded to 4.2, which went smoothly! Thanks!

It's a superb OS, and my only complaint is I'm enjoying using it too much, can't get much else done.

I'd love to see people's reactions to a new laptop with this as the ready-installed OS.
SN.
