comment Why doesn't Canonical update Thunderbird to version 38?
No, mozialla gets to push releases to ubuntu when they choose to; it is one of the applications that are exempt from the standard update policy because mozilla is very good about testing and ensuring quality releases.

comment Failing to boot Ubuntu 14.04 server from raid1 array
Sounds like you have a buggy bios that can't see beyond 2tb. Press c at the grub menu to go to the command prompt and run ls -l and it should report the size according to the bios.

comment How can a serial connection be set up as a network interface if at all?
No... the only way you can turn a sequence of bytes into an interface for network packets is to encapsulate the packets in a serial frame protocol, otherwise known as ppp, but you seem to be talking about not a device that speaks ppp over a serial line, but totally arbitrary bytes for which there can be no mapping to network packets.
