  pre-installed (oem) image Xenial


  When I tried to perform 16.04 --> 18.04 update, the update process
  failed. The process guide me to file this bug report.

  [Steps to reproduce]
  1. Update the system to the latest stack by "sudo apt-get update; sudo 
apt-get dist-upgrade -y"
  2. Reboot
  3. Make sure /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades is able to update (The 
configuration value of "Prompt" should be "lts", namely "Prompt=lts", not 
  4. Perform the release update: "sudo apt-get update; sudo do-release-upgrade 
  5. During the update process, it prompts for "Configuring gdm3". There are 
two choices "gdm3" and "lightdm". I picked up "gdm3". Please refer to the 
attachment for the prompt details as well.

  released yet.

  [Expected Result]

  The release update completed and I could start using Bionic instead of

  [Actual Result]

  The update process failed. It shows the error message[1] and
  automatically asking for filing this bug report.
