    I did a fresh install on my new laptop, but I had to edit GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in /etc/default/grub to get it to shutdown properly.
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash modeprobe.blacklist=dw_dmac,dw_dmac_core"

    Upgraded Ubuntu-MATE 15.04 to 15.10. No problems at all. In fact I had totally forgotten to stop the Folding@Home client 7 I'm running on this laptop & started the upgrade. Wasn't till it got to the re-boot phase when I remembered. Not only did the upgrade go smooth, Folding@Home started folding right where it left off.

    Xubuntu 15.04 to 15.10, download and install took about an hour on my six-year-old AMD "high performance computer." Seems to be working fine.

    Share your install or upgrade experience to 15.10 Release. (Oct 22/15 Release Date).

    Many of us remember the excitement around upcoming new Ubuntu releases and the whirl of activity here at the Ubuntu Forums, soon after.

    I haven't gone looking for user experiences much. I peeked in Installation & Upgrades a few times and other typical help forums and, have seen very little.

    I haven't left 14.04 so, I haven't an experience to share.

    I do wonder what others might have experienced.

    Do you feel like sharing?

    It's hard to leave the comfort and stability of a LTS release for a short term one that doesn't seem to have a lot of new features.

    Well, I upgraded from 15.04 to 15.10 using the update manager. Working well on my System76 Lemur with no problems. In fact, I really don't see any real changes. Feels like the same system to me. But, it works great.

    I'm glad the upgrade worked so well for you Kale.

    Hey, there still may be some that might want to Upgrade to the Newest Release and see this.

    Here are a couple of Wiki's on Release Upgrading. There is more information suggestions to better ones' chances of Upgrading Releases Successfully, that can be found online. Try a web-search term like this to start: Ubuntu Release Upgrade.

    Thank you, Kamalakar.

    Yes, I had read that detailed post of yours and I must add the sage advice about how to contend with newer hardware problems!
