Seem to be having issues. I cannot boot the 1.6 ISO. I've used etcher and DD to make USB bootable and tried ventoy to boot from ISO. It always brings up the grub menu with 3 options and no matter which it just has a black window where the menu was at and stays that way. The keyboard is unresponsive (numlock etc don't work) like it locked up the computer. All the checksums match and even redownloaded just to be sure. I tried to go to the previous 2 ISO releases and they install just fine. Once it reboots into the new desktop I cannot successfully apt update && apt upgrade as it says it cannot reach the repo.nxos.org (others are OK and network is working).

What hardware do you have? @cliffr39

@cliffr39
Alienware 15r4 -- i7-8750H, 32GB RAM, UHD Graphics 630 (Intel), GeForce GTX 1070 (NVIDIA). This happens immediately when I select any GRUB entry to start booting this version. Previous versions all boot fine.
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@cliffr39 It might be the version of the kernel. Boot the previous ISO from August and install it. I'll help you do the upgrade.
cliffr39
@cliffr39
I appreciate your help. I did try the 2 previous releases and it installs perfectly, I reboot into working desktop and do sudo apt update \ sudo apt upgrade and it fails with error cannot find repo.nxos.org (the other repos for debian resolve ok)
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Yes because that repository doesn't exist anymore. We moved to a new repository last month.
cliffr39
@cliffr39
Almost done installing. I think it is add-apt-repository right? What is the new location
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera

No. Follow the steps here:

Download this package: https://packagecloud.io/nitrux/repo/packages/debian/trixie/nitrux-repositories-config_0.2.6+dfsg_amd64.deb.
Clean the local package index:

sudo apt clean && sudo apt autoclean

Install the package:

sudo dpkg -i $path_to_file

cliffr39
@cliffr39
page not found, but looks like the version changed to 0.4.7 ?
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Yes, sorry. but download that package to update the repositories
cliffr39
@cliffr39
Thanks you are wonderful. now doing apt upgrade :)
I do get a encfs security popup
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Since you're upgrading from a previous release don't run apt upgrade as is, there's some things to do before that
cliffr39
@cliffr39
already started that. I'll reinstall. What do I need to do after installing the new .deb?
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Which ISO are you using?
cliffr39
@cliffr39
it was the Aug. 02 ISO
is there a guide or wiki somewhere that I missed?
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
After a release, whenever there's something to announce we do it through social media. If it's something major then we add to our blog.
cliffr39
@cliffr39
I saw the social media posts about the release of 1.6, but still don't see a guide on there for the upgrading previous versions. That's why I'm stumped. So I did the apt clean installed .deb what is the next step before doing apt upgrade?
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Ok, so it's a clean install of nitrux-release-amd64_2021.08.02.iso?
cliffr39
@cliffr39
yes
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Ok, first do apt install nitrux-repositories-config
Then, do apt install nitrux-hardware-drivers-legacy
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Then, do apt install --reinstall nx-desktop-settings-legacy
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Then, do apt upgrade after this operation some packages didn't upgrade, to fix that do apt install libkf5globalaccel5/focal libkf5globalaccel-bin/focal libkf5globalaccel-data/focal libkf5holidays5/focal libkf5holidays-data/focal libkf5plasma5/focal libkf5runner5/focal
Then, do apt install maui-apps=0.0.3-fd0f066 immediately after doing this do dpkg -r mauikit filebrowsing imagetools texteditor and then apt install -f
Now, do apt install index=0.0.3+2.0.0+git nota=0.0.3+2.0.0+git buho=0.0.3+2.0.0+git station=0.0.3+2.0.0+git vvave=0.0.3+2.0.0+git communicator=0.0.3+2.0.0+git shelf=0.0.3+2.0.0+git clip=0.0.3+2.0.0+git pix=0.0.3+2.0.0+git
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Then, do apt install nx-software-center and apt install base-files=11.3.0+nitrux-legacy
cliffr39
@cliffr39
That the last one?
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
The only thing left to do now is to copy the new settings for ZSH and touch gestures, these are applied to new users only, but you can copy the files too.
Yes that's the last APT command.
cliffr39
@cliffr39
Nice. I put that all into a script file so I have it if I format/reinstall again hah
cliffr39
@cliffr39
(with and without sudo) dpkg -r mauikit filebrowsing imagetools texteditor
this one tells me "ignoring... isn't installed" for mauikit, filebrowsing, imagetools, texteditor. Everything else finished fine
cliffr39
@cliffr39
Well did all that reboot and back to square one. Locked up at grub when I select what to boot
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
So it is the kernel then. Try with another kernel, LTS, LTS 5.4, Xanmod, Liquorix.
There must have been a regression in mainline 5.14.0. The release announcement lists the other kernel packages.
cliffr39
@cliffr39
do I dare trust the 5.14.1 hah
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@cliffr39 Perhaps it boots in your laptop now.
cliffr39
@cliffr39
@UriHerrera Just wanted to say thanks for all the help. 5.14.0 and 5.14.1 don't work ( see a quick flash of echo loading Linux and init then nothing), but 5.13.7-051307 is good.

@chrisalzo82:matrix.org As we mentioned in the latest release announcement, the software center is specifically for AppImages, and nothing more.

You can install Plasma Discover if you want a GUI. You can also run flatpak from the terminal if you don't mind using a terminal.
