The installfest scheduled for 06 January has been canceled because the UAT needs to use of the room that we had reserved. This is unfortunate and beyond our control. So to add some continuity to our events which have been scheduled for the first and third Saturdays of each month, we will hold an extended Ubuntu Hour/Linux get together at the Xtreme Bean, 1707 E. Southern Ave. in Tempe from 10-4 pm on 06 January. Treat it as an impromptu Installfest/Linux Workshop/Extended Ubuntu Hour/Linux get together. Attend if you can.

The Cochise Linux user Group in conjunction with the Ubuntu-Arizona Local Community Team will be conducting their third Installation Festival on 28 October 2017, 10-4pm at the University of Arizona South Learning Resource Center, 1140 N. Colombo Ave. Sierra Vista AZ.
It is time for the AZLOCO Team to be re-verified by the LoCo Council. We are on the agenda for their 12 September 2017 meeting at 2000 UTC (1300 our time). The meeting will take place on #Ubuntu-meeting on irc.freenode.net. Attend the meeting if you can to support your local Team.
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.
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.
