So here's what I did and it worked.
I made sure I have no updates available for anything first. Then:
* sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/30
* sudo apt update
* sudo apt upgrade
Just for fun I tried sudo apt dist-upgrade and it yielded nothing to
upgrade. Same thing for sudo apt full-upgrade.
Everything seems to be okay. I can watch livetv and play recordings. I
also updated a frontend to v30 running on a Ubuntu desktop and it
worked. I also tested Kodi 18 RC5 on that ubuntu desktop. All working.
The Shield TV version also worked with v30 just as it did with v29.1. I
have version v30-pre-983.
