Last year 20.10 failed to install with “No EFI partition”. I got round that by quitting and going back to my previous OS then doing “do release upgrade”, see Ubuntu Budgie 20.10 Released! - #3 by ChrisOfBristol
Now 21.04 Beta has failed and has messed things up so Grub fails, so I can’t go back to the 20.10 that is currently installed. I can’t even re-install that from DVD because of the problem outlined above.
I am now completely &8(^%$#(! I believe this is a bug in Ubiquity which has been around for a while without being fixed. This makes me cross because problems with installation are really bad.
I can’t download an earlier version of UB and write it to a DVD to install from that, as I’m running off the disk drive.
The only way I can see out of this, is to install from a Fedora disk I have, and hope it doesn’t use Ubiquity. Am I right or is there another way?
