Re: Upgrade of TDE DVD 14.04 to 16.04 -- FAIL

Well, Google pointed me to someone more clever than me:

 ( Now why didn't the do-release-upgrade process tell
   me there was a /var/log/dist-upgrade/main.log ?)

So, my problem seems to be:

$ grep ERROR /var/log/dist-upgrade/main.log
  2016-08-01 11:34:27,800 ERROR Dist-upgrade failed: 'The package
   'kubuntu-desktop-trinity' is marked for removal but it is in the
     removal blacklist.'


Well, I don't have too much time and grief invested in this install
so far...  So, I'll drop to the command line, apt-get remove
kubuntu-desktop-trinity.  Then try the sudo do-release-upgrade again.

If that flys, I'll reinstall kubuntu-desktop-trinity.

If ALL THAT works, I'll report back.
