The sources you now use have different 'hash' data (a value calculated to show if there's corruption in file sources) so one or more of your packages on one of your sources disagrees with that package on another source.

This does not exactly answer your question, but thought it may help a bit. I work with Ubuntu Server configurations, which has no GUI interface installed by default.

There are no problems in upgrading (do-release-upgrade) from 19.04 to 19.10 when 19.10 is released. The upgrade process will clean out any unneeded programs and files from the old version.
