I've been using Ubuntu since Breezy Badger (2005?). I'm just a community activist, so should use community driven IT solutions. Not an IT professional. I do make websites occasionally and do some freelance graphic design using Gimp and Inkscape. I'm pretty good with Open/LibreOffice.

comment Really SLOW update/upgrade and other problems - where to start to diagnose/solve?
Most of the time seemed to be taken unpacking and preparing packages. All the installing and cleaning went very quickly and smoothly at the end.

comment Really SLOW update/upgrade and other problems - where to start to diagnose/solve?
One thing I can see is a lot of duplication in the /var/log/dist-upgrade/apt-term log. For example the line Processing triggers for mime-support (3.54ubuntu1) is repeated 24 times, and Processing triggers for hicolor-icon-theme (0.12-1ubuntu2) is repeated 5 times...

Ok, the upgrade has finished (I haven't restarted my computer yet because I don't know how the log files get erased and I don't want to lose info in them). It took over 7 hours!
