        apt-get dist-upgrade, then restart - oh, kernel panic grub.cfg was generated wrongly. I fixed it, then restart - oh, gdm doesn't start I didn't find the reason, simply installed lightdm.

        After every large upgrade I need to spend next two days to workaround bugs in my system... It doesn't matter on which distribution.

          See if release prompt is set to LTS instead of normal.

            It's almost perfect for me.
            It does play nice.
            I don't have unity on my system, I usually install bare, console-only OS and install only the stuff I need via apt-get.

                That's why the Ubuntu 6 month cycles on the clock aren't working as well anymore. They have timed it so each release they're 1 version of GNOME behind. Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 was garbage because of it.

                    If you guys upgraded "by hand" (from the console), the most likely problem is that the packages weren't configured correcly, and the process itself didn't end well. The solution for this is to keep running "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade", "apt-get -f install" and dpkg (if needed), and configuring things until you don't get errors anymore.

                      Unfortunately fglrx will never get fixed it seems. AMD is moving to a new driver but it will only work for future GPUs. Doubt they will be updating fglrx after the new cards are released.
