I only just yesterday installed LL4.2 on my main machine - this was a fresh install as I was on 3.8 before. Jerry, it is AWESOME!!  ;D 8) Runs so smoothly, and was easy to install.

One thing that helped a lot with the install was being able to keep an existing partition where I store some of my files thanks to @firenice03 in this post: https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/installing-linux-lite/is-it-possible-to-install-ll-keeping-an-existing-partition-(an-ext4)/ . I was able to copy back those files into my fresh "Documents" directory in the new LL much faster than I would have from external hard drive. (Don't worry, I had still backed everything up on external hard drive just to be safe!  ;) ) Anyhow I can see that this approach will help me immensely any time I do a fresh install.

I love all the customization options through the settings. Thanks for another great version of a great distro, Jerry. Donation sent. Much appreciated.
Using Linux Lite for everything now. I put it on my desktop and my laptop. Woohoo!

Thanks for the update Jerry.

But I do however suffer from the problem of not being able to update through "Lite Upgrade". It always say that I'm already on the latest release but I do know that I'm on LL 4.0.

using "apt policy lite-upgrade-series4" fetch me this:
Quote
lite-upgrade-series4:
  Installed: 4.0-0010-linuxlite
  Candidate: 4.0-0020-linuxlite
  Version table:
     4.0-0020-linuxlite 500
        500 http://linuxlite.3load.com diamond/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://linuxlite.3load.com diamond/main i386 Packages
 *** 4.0-0010-linuxlite 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status




Trying to change my resources in "Lite Resources" will just end up always as "Lite Sources was unable to update the cache.
This may just be a temporary connectivity issues with the update server." And I've already tried switching to every available server listed and the issue kept persisting.

Can I perhaps upgrade through usb-stick? If I use Etcher to install to the stick and install the upgrade from there, can it be done? Sorry for my inexperience behaviour. Just recently trying out Linux since my old laptop can't survive with Windows anymore and I've been loving every aspect of the OS. Fits me perfectly fine on daily basis.  :)

Hi

This looks great and I wanted to try using it via a live USB before upgrading.  Unfortunately I'm presented with a login prompt.  What are the default credentials for this?

Thanks
