• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient. If you can't find what you're looking for here, check the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis.
  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

    Should i enable groovy release updates?

    This means that whatever repo you added does not support 20.10 (groovy). They might update it but it is always uncertain especially when it is a 3rd party repo.

    It was said that the proper version was in proposed. Maybe it's still there and hasn't been released. I don't know what the holdup is about though.

    Recovering From Failed Upgrade to 20.10

    You probably should boot up in a live environment (recovery or live usb) and then backup your /home (your files should be stored there) to an external drive. After backing up, you should just do a clean install. I recommend that you reinstall 20.04 LTS. I don't recommend using 20.10 right now...

    Can't you make it use NVIDIA, you clearly have an NVIDIA GPU in your lspci.

    Games are lagging and freezing!

    What Pop!_OS version? Some people were having problems with gaming performance on Ubuntu 20.10 and it may have made it to Pop!_OS 20.10 too.

    PubKey Problems in Spotify Update

    I wrote this for the OP since he didn't seem to understand at first. No snap? Snap can be installed on Pop but I guess it's your preference. Personally I don't see a reason to be negative about it, but I also don't use these universal packaging formats usually.

    PubKey Problems in Spotify Update

    Remove your Spotify repo using Repoman or another tool. Then go to https://www.spotify.com/us/download/linux/. Follow the Debian instructions to get your same thing back. You do not have to reinstall Spotify itself. Just the repo. This was annoying for me too. I was setting up a new Ubuntu...
