so this morning I woke up and went to SSH to one of my VPS servers. I was alerted that an update was available; in which I was recommended to run the following command:

sudo do-release-upgrade

So, I updated the server as it instructed me to. When it was completely updated to the new 17.10, I decided to finish up some tasks and update my main desktop OS to the new 17.10. Again, I ran the same sudo do-release-upgrade command and the update initiated.

I have now counted about 3 new errors or issues with my machine that I need help with. I will count down while trying to explain as thoroughly as possible. Many thanks in advance :)

Problem #1

The first thing that I realized was that the boot system is MUCH slower than before. I don't know if it was due to new configurations (I installed the default package maintainer's configuration files during the upgrade) or what, but it's pretty annoying that I have to wait > 3 mins before it even brings up the login screen. I tried to do F12 while it was booting to show the boot processes and such, but for some reason, it wasn't giving me anything.

* Update

I'm going to attempt to follow these instructions and see if it works: https://askubuntu.com/a/249117

Problem #2

My next problem is kinda strange. I'm running Ubuntu Linux on a Razer Blade Stealth (the first gen), so I've always had problems (like most others) with the OS recognizing my network cards, and webcam. This problem here lies in the network area.

Whenever I boot my pc up, most likely it is automatically connected to my home internet (wifi, not ether.). The issue is that even though I'm connected to my internet, it usually doesn't allow me to access the internet's broadband (ie going to google.com) immediately. Though if I give time to "do it's thing" then I can get on the internet after a couple minutes. This is extra weird because I've heard of it either working perfectly or not at all; though mine seems to work and not work at the same time?? This is really inconvenient and is kinda annoying. Please help me with this crappy pc ;(

Problem #3

At the ending of the upgrade process, it instructed me to reboot my machine. So I did, and I waited, and waited, and waited... When it finally booted back up and brought me to the new login screen (Pretty nice btw), I did so and immediately open a terminal session to finish off the installation. I ran the usual update/upgrade commands:

sudo apt update; sudo apt upgrade -y; sudo apt autoremove

I then noticed something strange... The following error codes is what it spit back out to me:

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

This is not really limiting me, but it would be nice to know how to fix this so my machine can upgrade properly.
