Public bug reported: I was trying to update to the latest version of Ubuntu following notification that it was available and the upload automatically threw up a number of faults (looping) and then reported the update had failed. When I restarted, the OS again reported a number of faults and then auto-referred me to here with description above which is obviously wrong as it refers to ver 16.04 LTS which I have not been on for some time.
Over the last few weeks I have been getting several updates a week which I thought was odd. I could not print before and then I had no sound. I tried all the online suggestions and forums with no joy. Now this. Release ver in the Terminal now gives: No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 19.04 Release: 19.04 Codename: disco which is confusing the hell out of me as the update said it failed. I was on ver 18.10 CosmeticCuttlefish. Looks like I am off back to MS - I don't want to but I need my computer and I can't send days trying to sort out the all issues.
