    using this to *upgrade via re-install* over existing 18.04 installation (sda5)
    no format of partition(s); any error on re-installing packages will be ignored (I didn't look what's on this thing;it's xubuntu & lubuntu desktops on 18.04)

    I did get an "Error restoring installed applications" :( but I'm ignoring that as it's a used system, and whilst I believe I've only got Ubuntu packages installed; python2 & Qt4 are now gone, and Lubuntu is now LXQt (not LXDE) so I believe the error is to be expected with this type of install (as I'm using it).

    grub deleted other OS correctly; I won't test that as I don't use it
    xubuntu install looks good...
    negatively the packages I expected (aptitude, fortune, figlet etc & audacious, lubuntu-desktop etc) are not there; whilst I wasn't going to assess lubuntu-desktop (due LXDE to LXQt change), the other packages should have been restored.. The issue however could be the machine failed to get access to gateway (using DHCP instead of normal static address, it may have been given a dead-end instead of valid gateway, thus was the equivalent of an off-line install & packages were unable to be installed). I didn't open a term & see if I'd got access to gateway or been routed to sink whilst in *live* mode.. (normally I ctrl+alt+T & check this; manually correct if routed to sink, but I forgot!)

    giving Xubuntu the benefit of the doubt; as Xubuntu install tests out great.
    None of my user files appears to have been touched.
