Ahh, luckily, I managed to log in to Mate rather than Lubuntu - that is still bringing up errors, but at least I can access the terminal from there...

Oh dear - it flashed up a message about the upgrade failing, something to do with Lubuntu, and it would automatically roll back the upgrade...
Then it rebooted, and now I have something vaguely resembling a desktop, only without any of the functionality.
Which is slightly less than useful.

Just started the update from Ubuntu 18.04 to 18.10.
See you in the funny pages! ;D

Manchester Airport, 21st February 2014.

Highlight of the day was probably the UAE Air Force A330 tanker that did a fuel stop.
