Warning: if you haven’t updated Pop!_OS 19.04 to 19.10 yet, wait until this bug fix lands before you do: https://github.com/pop-os/upgrade/pull/82
I’m currently running some sort of half-broken Frankenstein 19.04/19.10/half-Pop!_OS/half-Ubuntu hybrid.
Issue, with details: https://github.com/pop-os/upgrade/issues/81
@aral Why switch away from LTS anyway?
@Gargron I don’t really think LTS makes sense for my everyday dev machine – I want to play with the latest stuffs :) All my servers are on LTS (Ubuntu, not Pop).
@aral Something similar happened to me, have a look at https://www.reddit.com/r/pop_os/comments/d2sv5f/lost_nvidiaintel_graphics_switcher_after_upgrade/ to see how I fixed my issue, it might help.
@alfonsomunozpomer Thanks, Alfonso. If I attempt an apt full-upgrade right now, it actually tells me it will remove pop-desktop, etc. (as I think it’s trying to upgrade to Ubuntu 19.10, not Pop!_OS). I’m going to wait till the upgrade app is, umm, upgraded (tried compiling it myself but make/cargo is failing so there must be some undocumented dependency not managed by the Rust dependency system.)
@aral Ah, it’s a shame. It sounded similar to my botched update attempt... still it’s weird that by getting a clean set of APT sources wouldn’t fix things. Let me know if you get to the bottom of it, you never know when you can get to a wild bug.
@aral Thinking about switching to Pop!_OS from Ubuntu. Can I just install Pop!_OS over an existing Ubuntu without loosing everything and also enabling full disk encryption if it is not yet encrypted?
@aral still waiting to see if I can get a PhD support laptop to run Pop! on... as its "windows" hardware via work central IT I am waiting to hear my options
