While it doesn't have a 'real' impact on the PBs performance, it sure does 'feel' smoother. 
You can upgrade your current image using the available scripts like so 
sudo ./pine64_update_kernel.sh 0.5.5
sudo ./pine64_update_uboot.sh 0.5.5
sudo ./pine64_update_package.sh 0.5.5

I felt some flickering in PB11 and returned to 0.5.4

flickering ? I haven't experienced anything of the sort and I have been trying it out for the past few hours. Perhaps I missed something ? When does the screen flicker - generally when working in the desktop, when opening an application, when watching a movie in SMPlayer/ VLC, etc ? (I tried all the above, no flickering on my end).

right after login in the reduced distro using the upgrades.

try 0.6.0

I can only see the following error essage displayed on all tabs - 'Sorry, welcome feature could not feature any software for this category that is compatible on this system'. Anyone else notice this too? Please let me know how we can fix this & install additional software like audacity etc which is prsent in the software boutique, This would be well appreciated by users who are not that well versed with advanced Linux & prefer installing stuff using GUI.

I managed to fix the low audio issue by plugging in a USB sound card & conneting my earphones. Now the sound is really loud Smile
I'm guessing that users can solve this issue using a bluetooth speakers a well... haven't tested this out though. If anyone has done this please update.

The issue with the software boutique isnt our fault - it just looks like ubuntu mate hasnt considered adding packages for an arm64 SOC to the boutique. So, if you want GUI consider using synaptic package manager.

Regarding, audio: looks through recent posts, Xalius explained how to set the volume correctly (if I find it I will edit it in) take a look at Xalius response in this thread.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
