BSP Linux woes, early adopter information and a poll

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? 

As Luke said, this is a Software Boutique issue as it hasn't been updated for arm64. It should work if you use these parameters to force it into armhf mode instead (when run from the terminal). Hopefully they will update it in the future to support arm64.

ubuntu-mate-welcome --software-only --force-arch=armhf
(workaround shamelessly stolen from : http://www.minchev.eu/pinebook/)

In the meantime , you are much better off using the Synaptic Package manager, as it will let you search through all the arm64 amd armhf packages available for install. To install it:

sudo apt install synaptic

And you'll find it under System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manger on Ubuntu Mate once installed.
