    if so, then all your sources are still set to 16.04, not 18.04 (Bionic)

    Which makes me ask, based on this


    By dist upgrade, do you mean that you ran sudo apt-get dist-upgrade ? If so, then you have NOT upgraded to 18.04.

    Either way, something looks broken.

    Can you tell us what method you used to move from Xenial to Bionic?




    Despite the wording, in Ubuntu apt-get dist-upgrade (or the current apt full-upgrade ) is the correct command to update the system (as opposed to apt-get upgrade, which does not fully do so)
    I didn't catch that nuance. I assumed he or she was seeing both xenial and bionic repos thus the duplicate errors from apt.

    I ran this command in terminal
    Code:
    do-release-upgrade

    Refer to this page. Look about halfway down at the do-release-upgrade discussion. There is a specific sequence that must be done, and in my opinion do-release -upgrade should be specifically called out with sudo.

    It's entirely possible that this may be a big part of your "is it Xenial or is it Bionic" dilemma.

    Looks like I missed this part out
    However, in order to use this command, the system must first be fully upgraded. To do that, you should first run sudo apt-get upgrade, followed by sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. When those two complete, you can then run sudo do-release-upgrade and wait for the magic to complete.

    I guess I could try CTRL-SHIFT-Z to undo things :!:

    If it's any consolation, I did do a sudo apt-get update and fix any broken packages ;D

    Just a quick question to help me sort out my problem, how the heck do I delete files in system folders (root), namely the sources.list folder, they're all 'Xenial'
    I have tried in Dolphin but no luck and I'd prefer not to be told to use terminal to do this part ad I want to be sure of what I'm deleting

    Before you do that, could you enter this in a konsole
    Code:
    inxi -Sxxxx
    Then copy the output and paste it back here inside a CODE box (the # button in the Quick Reply dialog).

    I'm beginning to hate Ubuntu just as much as Window$ as it's like starting all over again with every LTS we have to bugfix and install hardware all over again.
    Why can't 'they' just roll out a new LTS as if it were a system update instead of having to go through all this every time

    So the good news is you are actually on 18.04.4, which means you be able to just fix the text of your sources in your list, which can be done in Muon. Then it would be a matter of a couple of apt commands to like fix everything.

    The alternative might be a fresh install of Bionic.

    But someone else might have a better idea.
