HP-2133: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Upgrade Failed; Xubuntu 18.04 Clean Install Succeeded

I have a 2008 HP-2133 laptop machine running 32-bit Ubuntu 16.04. The machine has been running satisfactorily for several years, the only chronic glitch being a loss of speaker sound sometime after the 16.04 installation. Also, Unity no longer ran and I have been running Xfce. I have delayed upgrading to 18.04 because I have always had difficulties with OS upgrades as support for my hardware dwindled. Of course, 16.04 reached end of life in April 2021, meaning no further support for that version....

Upgrading from openSUSE11.1 to openSUSE11.2

Posted 12-07-2009 at 01:58 PM by clvic

I'm starting my first (significant) post on this blog, reporting my experience on openSUSE upgrade, from 11.1 to 11.2.
I started from this useful post:
that basically shows how to do this task by using the command line tool "zypper".

I made some variation to this procedure: I did not want to burn a DVD and I did not want to perform a network install.
That's simple!...
