    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. It may be helpful to clarify your question. What was your previous 'one'? Lubuntu switched from LXDE (18.04 LTS & before) to LXQt in 18.10, which was a huge change (with loads of software changed from GTK+ to Qt based; for speed & to save resources the changes are necessary; you'll lose a lot of it if you continue using GTK+ apps, but if you have the resources it's still perfectly possible you'll just use more memory & cpu-cycles [ie. slower]) - but what you problem is unclear. – guiverc Feb 5 at 7:31

    Have you enabled networking in the recovery mode? Please edit your question to reflect all the details you posted in comments. It helps to keep our Q&A style tidy and could also bring more attention since an edited question gets bounced on the homepage. See also How do comments work? – Melebius Feb 5 at 7:49
