Because at some point I got the proposed archive enabled on Ubuntu, there are incorrect versions of a lot of software installed on Ubuntu making upgrading impossible.  I have to de-install all this stuff, upgrade, and then re-install.  So Ubuntu is going to be marginally functional while this is in progress.  I hope that I can complete this over the weekend.  In the meantime if something you need is among that removed, please use Debian, Mint, Zorin, or MxLinux, and if what you need is not present on them please use the ticket system to request what you need be installed.
