Recent changes to do-release-upgrade

This is a recent email to the ubuntu-devel mailing list that describes not only recent changes to the do-release-upgrade process, but how it works in general. It is also posted here.

If you are unaccustomed to the command-line...first of all, you should learn the command line. But for now, the do-release-upgrade utility is used to upgrade from one Ubuntu release to another. The graphical desktop utility utilizes this as well.

keyboard woes with an encrypted disk

During today's installfest we had a system with keyboard issues. The specific details were this: An ASUS laptop E200H, ubuntu 17.04 with gnome, and an encrypted hard drive. The system booted up to the screen where it requests the disk encryption password. At this point in time, the system did not allow the use of the laptop's keyboard. It did however recognize an external USB keyboard.

Cooler CPU Coolers

Background
I have 10 Proxmox servers to maintain all are basically the same, AMD FX 8350 CPU and asus motherboards with several more servers coming soon. FX 8350's are known to run hot and stock coolers weak per web searches. AMD just released a new wraith Cooler to help this issue. Time to figure out if there is a issue and how to fix it if there is a problem.

Testing (this should work on any debian based system)
install these
sudo apt-get install lm-sensors (a program to check system sensors including temp)
