    Conflicting version information

    I just recently upgraded from 18.04LTS desktop to 20.04 LTS desktop using apt do-release-upgrade.
    Checking "Details" from gnome shows 20.04LTS; using ssh from another pc says "welcome to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS ..............."
    Anyone know what might be wrong and if it's a problem?
    Thanks
    Frank

    What does lsb_release -a say?
    Anything else would be cosmetic, IMHO.

    lsb_release -a
    Code:
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
    Release:    20.04
    Codename:    focal
    so i guess everything is okay then

    You could look through the installed packages for any with "18.04" in the package filename.
    Code:
    dpkg -l "*18.04*"
    Sometimes old versions will be left behind. Be careful swapping in newer versions.

    |/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)

    un  oem-config-frontend-18.04.14.1timbuktu2somerville1 <none>       <none>       (no description available)
