    Phoronix: An Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Fix Is Coming For A Very Annoying & Serious APT Problem

    Recently on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS I've noticed that after installing dependencies for a number of benchmarks that the Ubuntu Linux installation is simply broken... I can start off with a clean install of Ubuntu 22.04 desktop but then after installing the dependencies for a number of tests, the Ubuntu installation is effectively unusable until going back and reinstalling numerous default packages. The desktop is no longer installed, networking support was dropped, and many other packages went missing. It turns out it's due to problematic and unintentional APT package management behavior that is now being fixed...

    maybe they go lazy ... if deps are broken just spill a snap?

      I don't know, removing entire ubuntu-desktop and systemd feels like not a bug, but a feature.

          Did the Ubuntu devs shout, "Oh! SNAP!" when they ran into this issue? or do they all use Fedora? /sarcasm

          In my case, it is Debian Bookworm and that is not showing any issues here with APT.

            Because the article says that Canonical declared 22.04 EOL and refused to fix the problem...

              Really? Long Term Support != All bugs fixed super-stable.

              Every new L.T.S. that I tried has had a rough start. You can wait for point release if you want something that has been tested properly.

              This coming from someone who frequently rages on Ubuntu. Yes these faults are embarrassing, but it should not be unexpected IMO.

                This is not an Ubuntu-specific issue and it has nothing to do with snaps. https://salsa.debian.org/apt-team/ap...e_requests/248

                  Stop with the logic. I want to hate on Ubuntu without reading the article or the bug report, or using any of my brain cells!

                    I understand this is a bug from upstream, but still, Ubuntu was expected to test their distro before releasing. I wonder how this escaped, it's not like Ubuntu has a short preview/beta window...
