Hi,

did you not read this part of the update guide?:

"Also note that where it states: "Notify me of a new Ubuntu version" is set to "Never". The reason is because if you allow it to update to any version of Ubuntu, you will most likely lose all your current settings and themes as a complete system update this way leads to the newest version of Ubuntu being installed!!.

You can update an Ubuntu system to the next highest level with the following teminal command, but!; and this is a big but, it will update to a full Ubuntu DE and ruin your Zorin installation:"


At the bottom of this section: "Software Sources Settings:"

During a system update I received the message that /boot did not have enough space.

I updated after removing old packages using the instructions at this url:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/89710/ho ... ce-in-boot

However - though Linux users may scoff - users coming from XP or Vista would have no clue what to do - even looking up what to do by Searching, opening a terminal, and Copy/Pasting.

This is one of those things that should have a prompt box come up, and then a script run to take care of it. Otherwise someone coming from Windows (like me) would just sit there and curse (maybe) ;)

Thanks for the great clarity of your guidelines, Im a first time linux user, just installed zorin 9.0 Ultimate, and this is the best laid out comprehensive, and friendly...forum i have come across!. part of the reason i made the best decision to go with Zorin, installed on win 8.1 laptopp no problems, works great...
expt none of the dvd burners, video /iso tools included can write to dvd, all missing some 14.04 driver thingies!:-) tho i ran update from inside the apps problem still there, i think the actual programmes maynot be upto 14.04 compat yet... anyway I will now go and run all these update/repair guides so clearly set out here before i go screaming for help like some silly noobie!.
thanks for your dedication
stuie ;)
NB: should have read first before install so i could have followed the post install update guidelines, my bad but the automated updates etc all went smoothly.
