Re: Who runs MX from USB and why?

I snapshot my system and use Live USB maker to create an ISO of it. I have used it for recovery purposes and to transfer the system to another computer. So I do not regularly run from the USB. I do run from it to do testing of alphas and betas. I find it more convenient then swapping out disk drives...

Not cultural insensitivity. I did actually do that.

Re: Upgrade question

@colin_b

That is probably the case. You need to exclude them in the snapshot configuration. I have done the that so timeshift snapshots are not copied to MX Sanpshot. There are a lot of bytes there especially if you keep 3 Timeshift snaps.

BitJam beat me to it.

Re: About the Alert and not upgrading

If the update was not taken when this first cropped up you would see a kernel update.

In your case Eadwine you took the upgrade and fixed it on your system so you would see no kernel upgrade as the old kernel was put back.
Confusing I know.

Re: About the Alert and not upgrading

At some point the repos will sync and the offending kernel will not be there. That may have already happened. so run the command kmathern posted.

Code: Select all

sudo apt update && apt list --upgradable
If you do not see the kernel in the list it is safe to upgrade.
