    1fallen, WOW! I just tried
    sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop

    and got a huge list of things downloaded, installed and set up. However, my desktop still looks the same. Oh, I probably need to reboot. I'll do that.

    Hoping for the best, all good here:
    Code:
    me@me-ThinkPad-X1-Carbon-7th:~$ apt policy ubuntu-desktop
    ubuntu-desktop:
      Installed: 1.497
      Candidate: 1.497
      Version table:
     *** 1.497 1001
           1001 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lunar/main amd64 Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    Once again I'm using Lunar sources here:
    Code:
    sudo apt dist-upgrade -s

    YES!! After reboot, my desktop is BACK!!! And I got this:

    :~$ apt policy ubuntu-desktop
    ubuntu-desktop:
    Installed: 1.481
    Candidate: 1.481
    Version table:
    *** 1.481 500
    500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu jammy/main amd64 Packages
    100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

    I'm tempted to mark this thread 'SOLVED', but I'm not sure what thing(s) actually worked. It may be relevant that I had gnome extensions installed and just removed it all before trying sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop again. Now that I have my desktop back, I'm not sure if gnome-extensions was causing the problem all along... I miss some of its features, but am afraid to install it again.

    Well from my view tasksel did not serve you well at one point.
    APT seemed to jump in and handle things nicely for you.
    Yep wait a day or two and see if we get any more bad results.
    Just update and upgrade the way your accustom to.

    Can you open a terminal again and enter:-
    Code:
    apt policy gnome-shell-extension-manager
    Is it installed?
    This package should help with the settings of the extension Desktop Icons NG (Ding).

    Hi tea for one, This is what I got:

    :~$ apt policy gnome-shell-extension-manager
    gnome-shell-extension-manager:
    Installed: 0.3.0-0ubuntu2.1
    Candidate: 0.3.0-0ubuntu2.1
    Version table:
    *** 0.3.0-0ubuntu2.1 500

    So that is installed, but I'm still leery of reinstalling gnome extensions...

    I understand your apprehension after all that has happened.
    As the package is in your system, have a look at the settings for Desktop Icons NG (Ding).
    Maybe, a pleasant surprise awaits..............

    EDIT: ninja'd by tea for one
    You can't second guess your install or else where's the fun?
    Code:
    >> apt policy gnome-shell-extensions
    gnome-shell-extensions:
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 43.1-1
      Version table:
         43.1-1 100
            100 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian sid/main amd64 Packages
    
    
    me on Tue Jan 10 at 03:27 PM in ~ branch: (HEAD) 
    >> apt policy gnome-shell-extension-manager
    gnome-shell-extension-manager:
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 0.2.3-2
      Version table:
         0.2.3-2 100
            100 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian sid/main amd64 Packages
    Might be a test early on the integrity of your install.

    OK, I did it! Enabled gnome extensions again, and the sky did not fall! Everything seems to be working as it did before the evil update!
    Thank you so much for your caring and dedicated help!
