Ok Just experienced something strange. Did the upgrade to 5.6, but when it finished and rebooted it gave me a weird display and could not do anything. Did a hard reset and everything rebooted. Checked version in system info. and it says LL 5.4. Yet when I do the upgrade it tells me it is updated to latest version. ???

I just had that experience too. I'm not sure what version of LL I was on (I occasionally run the "install updates" tool. I haven't run it for 2-3 months.). When it rebooted, I have a strange'ish desktop. It looks like QT desktop in some ways. It has  Mac-like "docker" at the bottom, and the panel thing (with date, "applications" button to the menu) is on the top of the screen. It seemed to lose my settings. The screen now timesout and I have to enter a password to unlock (I had it setup so it never timed out). The touchpad was enabled (I had that disabled).

For me, it's not big problem. It's working fine enough for what I use the machine for. I'm not going to try to fix it. But, I wanted to chime in that something happened. Some details which I saw you were asked to provide:

cat /etc/llver
Code: [Select]
Linux Lite 5.4
apt policy lite-upgrade-series5
Code: [Select]
  Installed: 5.0-0040-linuxlite
  Candidate: 5.0-0040-linuxlite
  Version table:
 *** 5.0-0040-linuxlite 500
          500 emerald/main amd64 Packages
          500 emerald/main i386 Packages
          100 var/lib/dpkg status

If there is anything else I can provide to help understand this, I'm happy to do so. But, as I said, I'm fine with how it is. I'm planning to build a fresh system soon. For what I use this machine for, it's fine how it is. No problem.

EDIT: I originally mentioned that it seemed some config was gone. I just noticed my ~/.config.redshift.conf file is gone. I'm not sure what all is gone. So far it doesn't seem bad/serious. My data files are still there. Just the system config seems reverted in some way.

I also noticed the "Applications" menu button doesn't have "favorites" as a category. That's gone. (But, I can access the things I favored through the other menu categories.).

Again, it's not a problem for me. It's working well enough for what I need. But, if I can provide any details to help understand what happened, I will. This system was installed fresh about last August. I think I did a couple updates shortly after that. I don't think I did anything unusual when I did the update today. It seemed like it was all automatic. I didn't interact with it much.
