There have been a number of people reporting issues with Linux Lite 3.0 & 3.2 when trying to upgrade.

If you have already upgraded to Linux Lite 3.4, please check the following.

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
cat /etc/llver
If you have already upgraded to or are running Linux Lite 3.4 and it returns Linux Lite 3.4, you are NOT affected by this bug and you have nothing further to do.

If it returns, cat: /etc/llver: No such file or directory OR Linux Lite 3.0 OR Linux Lite 3.2 and you have already tried upgrading to 3.4, complete the following:

For people who tried to upgrade from Linux Lite 3.0 open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
wget http://repo.linuxliteos.com/patches/patch-llver-30 && chmod +x patch-llver-30 && ./patch-llver-30
and follow the onscreen instructions. It will ask you to run Lite Upgrade again, you must do this. You need to be Administrator as the patch will ask for your password.

For people who tried to upgrade from Linux Lite 3.2 open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
wget http://repo.linuxliteos.com/patches/patch-llver-32 && chmod +x patch-llver-32 && ./patch-llver-32
and follow the onscreen instructions. It will ask you to run Lite Upgrade again, you must do this. You need to be Administrator as the patch will ask for your password.

Thank you to all those who reported issues. This shows just how important it is to report issues, even if you think they are minor. Everyone benefits, so thank you :)

Look forward to your feedback.

A quick thank you to all those who reported this and to Jerry for the solution. I confess I hadn't realised I hadn't upgraded until I did the terminal check. It now gives a 3.4 response and the upgrade is well worth it. Very impressed. ;D
