I forgot autoremove. Especially as you used apt to perform a full upgrade, I think that would suffice at purging all the legacy xenial packages.

What comes out if you run lsb_release -a?

what about this, after ensuring packages are up to date:

sudo apt install update-manager-core
sudo do-release-upgrade

How would one go about doing an upgrade? I would love to use the pinebook with a vpn(i found out my vpn service can be used in firefox and works on the pinebook) to play out on the net. and do stuff.

Just edit "/etc/apt/sources.list" file and replace "xenial" by "bionic" or better by "cosmic", then run "sudo apt update" and "sudo apt dist-upgrade" and you are done.

Maybe you will have to solve some issues during upgrade, just read carefully what it writes and do what is necessary, or paste it here and we will help you.

Thanks I will try this and see how much trouble i can get into

I am sure it is Ubuntu 18.10, but forgot to check yesterday, will try today Smile

edit:

pine64@pinebook:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu Cosmic Cuttlefish (development branch)
Release: 18.10
Codename: cosmic

edit: So I actually sold my PB and will switch to some more powerfull device. Pinebook is a good piece of HW worth 100 €, but not more and not suitable for everyday work (as everybody knows).

Before i could try your upgrade pinebook did it on its own. Told me i was using an outdated ubuntu and ask if i wanted to upgrade. I said yes and now i have bionic and mate desktop. i am missing a desktop vpn service, and i liked tomboy notes it is also gone. so i need to play with this and see what it can do.

Thanks i will keep playing with this
