Ubuntu should absolutely STOP ADVISING AND ENABLING updates. The update tool is a complete mess.

Only a FRESH INSTALL has any chance of working anymore. An update is a crap shoot that fails miserably most of the time.

Everyone do yourselves a big favor and only do fresh installs.

Its better to be on a LTS than upgrade.

You may be right, but you really need to watch your tone.

If you wish to repost with a different tone, feel free.
