Lubuntu 23.10 Upgrades

In the Ubuntu 23.10 release announcements (eg. Ubuntu 23.10 (Mantic Minotaur) released) an upgrade instruction was provided (via link) for those that didn’t want to wait.


As I write this, the current status for the release is still marked “In Progress”.

An issue has recently been announced on the Ubuntu Development Mailing List by Brian Murray which maybe of interest to any users of Lubuntu 23.10 how use the -d to upgrade their 23.04 systems to 23.10.

Due to a bug in snapd [1], which is now resolved, users who upgraded
early to mantic will not have received the firmware-updater snap [2].
You can install the snap via:

snap install --channel latest/stable/ubuntu-23.10 firmware-updater


[2] Install firmware-updater on Linux | Snap Store

Execute this command and your system should be fully-upgraded.
