Welcome to Roanoke Linux Users Group Tuesday, February 20 2018 @ 12:34 PM EST
I upgraded one laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS. Most of the process went pretty smoothly. However, every software update after the upgrade complains about a failed install:
Calculating upgrade... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
38 not fully installed or removed.
For Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, the Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) support ends on August 7, 2014. What does this mean? What do you need to do?
You can try out other Linux distributions on your Ubuntu or other Linux machine by installing on a virtual machine. Links with how-to instructions for two popular methods:

Just announced on the Linux Mint Blog: LM 17 Qiana with the K Desktop Environment (KDE) has been released. From the blog post: "Linux Mint 17 is a long term support release which will be supported until 2019. It comes with updated software and brings refinements and many new features to make your desktop even more comfortable to use."

See you there!
Easy to use, Windows XP replacement for older PC hardware. Based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with LInux Lite specific repository and software. They have an active user forum for tips and support. Looks like a very good candidate to try out!
