The conclusion is that the script has some bug at the "GRUB" writing stage. I assume the build of the grub.cfg is somewhere wrong and when the update-grub is issued, the wrong file is written over the old one.
Hope for an easy fix...
All the best! :)

There is no 'problem with the script' that I can see. I also have UEFI firmware and my GRUB is on  /dev/sda1 device. The "/" partition is /dev/sda2 as well. No issues here when I upgraded, when the upgrade instructions are followed to the letter.

Hi! :)
Thanks for the quick response! ;) :D

Please, read the [Later edit... 19:30] section. ;)
There is a bug in the upgrader script. It broke badly my GRUB. I have an UEFI firmware so GRUB is on the /dev/sda1 device. The "/" partition is /dev/sda2. ;)

All the best! :)

trinidad:
A few comments you probably already figured out.

1) Should run updates before upgrade
2) New kernel won't load until you reboot from a successful upgrade
3) Should have unplugged USB sound system before upgrading then reinstalled it on the running new kernel
4) Should now run updates again before attempting manual changes

Possible solution: Unplug the sound system, run updates again, go from there.

Hi!
I performed the upgrade and encountered trouble...
I am using  since 2012 a Lexicon Lambda audio interface.
While in Lite 5.0 and 5.2 it was OK, now, in 5.4, stopped recognizing the device.
Here it is how it looks now:


--- Code: ---inxi -c 0 -ACdGMNSz
System:
  Kernel: 5.4.0-66-generic x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Xfce 4.14.2
  Distro: Linux Lite 5.4 LTS
Machine:
  Type: Desktop System: Dell product: Precision T1700 v: 01 serial: <filter>
  Mobo: Dell model: 048DY8 v: A01 serial: <filter> UEFI: Dell v: A25

  L2 cache: 8192 KiB

  Device-2: Intel 8 Series/C220 Series High Definition Audio driver: N/A
  Device-3: NVIDIA GK107 HDMI Audio driver: N/A
[...]
--- End code ---

And this is how it was supposed to look like:

Audio:
  Device-1: Intel 8 Series/C220 Series High Definition Audio
  driver: snd_hda_intel
  Device-2: NVIDIA GK107 HDMI Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
  Device-3: DigiTech type: USB driver: snd-usb-audio
  Sound Server: ALSA v: k5.4.0-40-generic

Second weird thing:
During upgrade, I was provided with the 5.4.0-70 kernel.
For some reason, instead of running the kernel, the system shows it in the list of removable kernels, and keeps running the the 5.4.0-66 kernel.

What went wrong?  :022:
The system said the following:

[04/01/21 17:12:53] UPLSBISSUE


The following was supposed to solve the problem:


--- Code: [email protected]:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
[sudo] password for serban:
[email protected]:~$ ^C
[email protected]:~$ ^C
[email protected]:~$
--- End code ---

As seen, nothing happened...
The only approach available for now, is revert to Lite 5.2...
What happened? Should I restart the Upgrade procedure, from Lite 5.2?
Wait for a fix?
What?

As a last resort, I issued "Fix Broken Packages" from Synaptic.
Result... Still nothing.

Best regards! :)

[Later edit... 19:30]
The Upgrade script went very wrong. I ended up REINSTALLING Lite 5.2, after two failed restore attempts. The problem was on USB recognition. Failed to recognize the keyboard, even though CloneZilla stated that the restore was successful.

Here is how it looks after reinstallation:

The conclusion is that the script has some bug at the "GRUB" writing stage. I assume the build of the grub.cfg is somewhere wrong and when the update-grub is issued, the wrong file is written over the old one.
Hope for an easy fix...
All the best! :)
