I updated my development system a couple of days ago, so here are some
things I found.

If you are using mythweb, you will need to change the Apache2 modules
so that php 8.1 is used instead of 7.4 (which has been removed):

sudo su
a2dismod php7.4
a2enmod php8.1
systemctl restart apache2

If you had any customisations (such as bigger limits) in the
/etc/php/7.4 php.ini files, those will need to be copied to the
corresponding /etc/php/8.1 php.ini files before restarting Apache2.

I was running the HWE kernels and Nvidia 515 drivers, and in the LTS
upgrade, my Nvidia drivers were backleveled to 510.  To fix that:

sudo ubuntu-drivers install
