I started off adding this to the 'new drive won't boot' thread, but
perhaps it's better stand-alone.
I had boot problems a couple of weeks ago in updating my old laptop from
kubuntu 16.04 to 18.04 I have the impression that they arose mainly
from electing to clean up unwanted files _during_ the upgrade process,
and maybe from having several ppas enabled. Only the original 'small'
80 GB disk involved. (My first disk drive was a DEC RK05, cartridge
capacity 5 MB, in a 21 inch rack.)
IIRC the upgrade seemed to stagnate and I tried to reboot, but 'A stop
job is running' and the network wasn't found: 'Check your network
Eventually I resorted to a boot-repair disk, added a boot parameter
apparently required for the intel GM965 video chip, and 'reconfigured'
lightdm. I think it's using sddm now. All completely dependent on
having google etc on another machine. As always, I run myth in konsole
tabs, so at least I can usually tell that the network is down...
