Well I was not one of the lucky ones who had no issues upgrading.  I 
didn't get any errors during upgrade, but my Frontend on the backend 
would not connect.  I checked some logs and I got some errors in the 
backend and frontend logs, something related to bad socket. The funny 
thing is that Kodi could play a recorded tv program but it took several 
minutes for the database in Kodi to completely download from the backend.

In the interest of time, just blew everything away and restored back to 
my old Mybuntu 16.04/mythtv 0.28.  I'll stay here for now.  Might try a 
fresh build sometime with 29 when I don't have 800GB of recordings to 
backup and restore.
