Linux Lite 5.8 Final Released

<< < (2/4) > >>

Thank you for all your hard work!

Very much appreciated.  :045:

I'll release a patch the new way lsb works this week. By the end of the week -a will show the correct information.
Some may be getting the Ubuntu logo in Neofetch too. That will also be addressed.

First of all : Thanks a lot for the update and for all your work.

I performed the upgrade from 5.6 to 5.8 using "Settings / Lite Upgrade".
All was upgraded successfuly and, after the reboot, I was running Lite 5.8.

There are 2 minor glitches, however : "neofetch" and "mintstick" were not installed.
I installed "neofetch" manually with "apt install". 1st issue solved...
But, when I try "sudo apt install mintstick", the system is unable to locate the package...

In "/var/log/lite-upgrade.log", there is an error as well:
"E: Unable to locate package mintstick"

Have I missed anything when running the upgrade ?

Haven't had a bug in Lite Upgrade for a while. I have fixed this, cheers!
Run updates first, then try installing mintstick now.

I waited with extreme patience for February 1st and am immensely pleased with the upgrade to 5.8.  Did all the standard updates first, which totaled 27 units.  The using the Control Panel, did the upgrade.  Although I'm running a basic DSL line, I don't think the upgrade took more than 15 minutes.  Reboot and success.  Thank you so very much.  I thoroughly enjoy Linux Lite.
