I did a sudo updatedb and rebooted.
I chose to keep something the same during the update - don't remember what it was. :bagoverhead:
That could be the reason.
Maybe one of the version release files in /etc/ folder?

58 packages upgraded, 11 new install. Had some warnings about unable to delete old directory's which I assume was to do with not touching the home folder, other than that everything looks good.

Code: Select all

$ inxi -S

I have an issue on my system not sure if caused of this or I borked the system before (which is probable) I don't see anything in Settings, no icons, nothing. Any idea how to fix this? (and just to be sure please check if that is OK for you)

Mine shows as MX-17.b3_x64 Continuum November 29 2017. That is weird.
a long time ago we decided to support upgrades from RC but not from beta, so betas will not be changed by the version string script.

neither is the date, so we can tell what iso a distro started from if need be.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

the name change comes thru the mx-system package, so check to see if its installed on your system.
