Did it ask for and you did put in your password?

Edit - those errors are normal errors


Yes it did. I provided the passwd then the errors happened.

Thank you,

for the warm welcome. As the need arises, I will most diffidently take you up on the offer of help. As it stands for the last 24 hrs of use, seems to be very stable. But if it does hit the fan, what does one typically do? boot from disk?  use the installation option, on the log in screen? or avoid using the distro for a few days?

edit... Is it this a rolling distro? if not, what frequency should one do sudo apt update  &&  apt install upgrade?

Hello all,
Thought I drop by to say hello.

While I am not new to trying out different Linux distros, I have yet to find a place to call home.

With the plethora of subjects to learn to use Linux well, it can be overwhelming, I mean you can only type in basic commands for so long.

I have often thought that most Linux communities should have a Mentoring/Tutoring program for new users. That would serve to put them on the correct learning path. However I can see how the time commitment issue for the volunteers, of such a thing would be a discouraging factor.

Well... I rambled on long enough.
