    By "clean install" do you mean erase the drive first including data?
    It might be helpful if you are able to point me towards linked instructions for specifically what you are suggesting.

    Many thanks, Paul

    It may be worth backing up any data and clean installing.
    The full install is fast, so you can be back up and running in less time than you've already spent and at the end of it you should have a good stable system again

    I assume you're aware that a direct version upgrade from 22.04 to 24.04 is not even offered yet,though being Linux, there are always workarounds to enable users to carry out such potentially problematic upgrades.

    You do not give any details of how you did the upgrade; did you manually change the repo versions from jammy to noble and then cross your fingers and hope?

    Give as much detail as possible and we may be able to help more.

    However make sure you have good usable backups before doing anything drastic as this will allow you to do a new clean install and then restore your backups should this end up as the easiest and quickest way forward.
    How I did the upgrade:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt dist-upgrade
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt list --upgradable | more
    sudo apt upgrade
    sudo apt install ubuntu-release-upgrader-core
    grep 'lts' /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
    prompt=lts
    sudo ufw allow 1022/tcp comment 'open portssh TCP/1022 as failsafe for upgrades'
    sudo ufw status
    sudo do-release-upgrade -d
    sudo nano /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
    sudo do-release-upgrade
    sudo snap refresh
    sudo do-release-upgrade
    sudo sed -i 's/Prompt=normal/prompt=lts/g' /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
    cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
    sudo update-manager -d
    lsb_release -a
    sudo apt-update && sudo apt upgrade

    My goodness!
    You really did jump ahead of the system, didn't you!

    I have to say that I have never come across such a long and complicated way to carry out a version upgrade but that's not surprising as i have always clean installed my root partition by choosing "Something else" ie, manual partitioning, leaving my/home partition untouched.

    I shall have to leave this to others as I'm definitely out of my depth here dealing with something I've never done

    This time, it was a major mistake, I did not realize 24.04 was buggy. Could I please have advice on how to back-grade if possible? THanks. I first upgraded from 22.04 to 23.10 then from there to 24.04. I can give more details if required, but it was all done with standard commands, I think, and I did not see any obvious errors.

    There is no advice online that I can find: It is not since the 1990s that I had an OS that failed to connect to internet ("Connection failed: Activation of network connection failed"). This is a very standard wired connection, there is nothing I can find online for 24.04 failing to connect a wired connection, or for any Ubuntu failing to do this on hardware that previously worked fine. No, its not my settings (the network guy here also cannot fix it. No, it is not ipv6. No it is not the clock.

    Its weird because it connected to the internet presumably to download the upgrades with no issue, in both the above upgrade steps, so I am assuming 24.04 broke my internet connection in a final installation step after all downloading was complete.

    Also:

    Clicking on the libre office writer icon does nothing, libreoffice calc icon does nothing, and so it goes on. This upgrade seems so broken that I cannot see any obvious solution other than, perhaps grudgingly admitting that Windows has cornered the market for a reason because I am several hours into this now, and to be honest if I had known that basic stuff that has been working for many years would be broken again, I would have definitely just left the whole thing alone for the forseeable future.

    Any expert advice much appreciated.

    Thanks, Paul
    The level of entitlement in this post is palpable.

    Why do you feel you're "owed" a "warning" because you lack system adminstration skills to debug problems with your computer?

    And the lack of those skills is obvious from your approach to problem solving: ask the "network guy" - he doesn't know? Give up and rant on a forum.

    How about ... what troubleshooting steps have you tried? What errors or specific issues are you seeing? What logs have you checked? You seem to have committed almost no effort to actually addressing your issues.

    An adjustment in attitude and reduction in hyperbole will get you much further in life and especially when asking strangers for help.

    - I got it from itsfoss which I have found/assumed to be completely trustworthy, so I trusted it.

    ->Nothing I wrote was ad hominem. Everything you have written is ad hominem. I think that speaks for itself.

    I also feel that if Ubuntu wants the reputation for being the most solid, stable, reliable distro, then it should be the truth. If that is not the reputation it wants, then I am not entitled to anything.
