Ubuntu 23.04 - Lunar Lobster πŸŒ•πŸ¦ž

Ubuntu 23.04 - Lunar Lobster πŸŒ•πŸ¦ž

I just upgraded my main workstation from Ubuntu 22.10 to 23.04 (Lunar Lobster). While the process itself was pretty seamless, I hit a few minor bumps afterwards. Here I am collecting the issues as they happen, alongside their solutions:

zsys error during apt operations

After the upgrade, I started seeing this error when running apt commands:

ERROR couldn't connect to zsys daemon: connection error: desc = "transport:
Error while dialing dial unix /run/zsysd.sock: connect: no such file or directory" #

The only solution I found was to uninstall and reinstall zsys itself. That did the trick! πŸŽ‰

sudo apt remove zsys
sudo apt install zsys

Note: I was unable to reproduce this on my laptop.

Firefox+1Password integration

I found this issue already in 22.04, where the only solution was to switch from the snap to the apt installation of Firefox. As the upgrade reverted that, by re-installing the snap version of the browser, the issue happened again.

You can find this bug on Launchpad, and the solution in this post from last year.

pip externally managed environment β€œerror”

This is not really an error, but a new policy being enforced by Ubuntu to avoid breaking the system installation. To be fair, the writing was on the wall that this was coming. I believe it will push people to handle Python packages more appropriately. I also found a nice post on GitHub with some related details!

Steam library resets to default

On my workstation, I store Steam games on a different internal HDD from the root. Weirdly so, the library setup reset to default. No worries though, adding the other folder back restored all the games in the blink of an eye!

Bluetooth misbehaves

After upgrading, my bluetooth earbuds (WF-1000XM4) do not connect to my laptop anymore. Funnily so, the laptop thinks it has actually connected, but as soon as you exit the bluetooth page and go to the sound settings, it realizes the mistake.

Removing all devices I had connected via bluetooth before the upgrade, and then connecting them again fixed the issue :tada:

Nothing else so far. I will update this post with more news as they come πŸ“°
