comment What would be the differences between a persistent USB Live Session and a installed Ubuntu in a USB drive?
Well, this diestro does not not fit in a DVD. It is about 5 GB, a DVD takes about 4.7 GB. Even if it did, Canonical does not distribute it like that. Why? I don't know.

@jiggunjer Yes. The Live ISO is compressed. It takes some time to uncompress itself every time it is run.

comment Wubi and Edubuntu?
Will it work? Probably (for a while). You can try and come back with a question if it does not work.

Upgrading to a new version in WUBI doesn't always work. See askubuntu.com/questions/285418/…

1. Wubi does not work with Windows 8 and above. 2. If the underlying file-system gets corrupted (for example, for improper shutdown of either Windows or Ubuntu), WUBI won't boot. 3. WUBI only allows for 30GB of virtual disks. So, IMHO it is a disaster waiting to happen the next time Windows crashes or files (including the WUBI virtual disk) are encrypted in Windows by the cryptolocker malware.

comment Can't shrink this partition even though there is unused space
This looks like a Windows OS partition. It is best to resize it while in Windows using Windows tools. You may need to defrag the partition first using Windows tools so that all the files are not placed all over the partition.

comment Kubuntu release upgrade error (14.04 to 15.10)
Try booting from a LiveUSB/DVD of Kubuntu 15.10 and start the install process. It should give you the option to upgrade the existing version to the new one. If that option is not present, abort installaion. In any case backup your data first. If this works I will write a full answer.
