Thanks for the responses to my comments.  I appreciate that this is not
the LTS version, and I didn't have to pay to get it.

I have two approaches to updating.  Either stay fully up to date on the
most recent versions and risk having issues with ever changing versions,
or never update at all.  I take the view that being really up to date is
best, so I keep us moving forward on non-LTS versions and take the risk.
If I was asked to pay, say £50 or so, I would.

Other have suggested booting the appropriate version each time I boot.
That's a nuisance, and not something my non-IT partner could handle at
all (just switch it on and log in - why do I have to do anything else?).
I suspect some who spend a lot of time in IT have little idea how people
who have not grown up with it regard it (I started in 1970, so still
have some feel for it, but am by no means expert in any area).

I assume that the recent release of 4.10.0-21 would override the patched
4.10.0.20.  Is that correct?  If so it would still cause ordinary folk
some problems.

When I go away for a while I'm still going to be forced to tell my
partner not to take any updates at all.

I'll see I can contact OMG ubuntu.
