In this video, I go over what it takes to migrate from Ubuntu to Pop!_OS from System 76. This is an in place upgrade and will upgrade your existing Ubuntu to Pop. $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:system76/pop$ sudo apt update$ sudo apt install pop-desktopTimeShift Backups: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-lMJHcjCVsWhere can I find you!?- Discord ➜ https://discord.gg/f6r7srN- Patreon ➜ https://www.patreon.com/christitustech- Official Site ➜ https://www.christitus.com- Reddit ➜ https://www.reddit.com/r/ChrisTitusTech/- Twitter ➜ https://twitter.com/christitustech- Twitch (Live Streams) ➜ https://www.twitch.tv/christitustech===My Recommend PC Hardware===https://www.christitus.com/recommendations/===My Recommended Linux Books===https://www.christitus.com/recommendations/#books===My Current YouTube Gear===https://www.christitus.com/recommendations/#youtubeDISCLAIMER: This video and description contain affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a small commission.

What about updates?
That is not Pop OS, you made a frankenstein install. It is neither Ubuntu or Pop OS. That configuration is 100% unsupported. Please add a warning to the video, such action is not recommended to new linux users.
Heyyy this is just changing DE! One with conflicts since both are gnome...... ish
What do you mean upgrade?Aren't all distro's equal?Should be more like 'sidegrade' xD
I enjoy your videos. I always learn something new even though I been using Linux for years.
Does anyone know what distro he used as a daily driver?
Hey Chris, I'm assuming this works because both distros are Debian related. I would think doing such a transition from Ubuntu to Arch might be problematic. Love the video. I knew it would involve changing you repository setup but I never would have thought to do it the way you did it. Brilliant. As a note, I tried Void Linux on an Asus laptop mainly because it used runit. What a mess. The install wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. However, each update broke the system ever further. Finally, even the shutdown now command failed because it was set up for systemd, not runit. I think the developers have a lot more work to do on that distro. It did have a good assortment of packages in their repository including Timeshift. Anyway, great video. Have a great day.
Maybe I missed it, but the question I have is why I would want to "upgrade" to PopOS?
Can this be a way to fix a system that broke after purging a software? I tried pulseeffets flatpak, ppa then snap non of witch worked, so while removing them something got corrupted, and i didn't do a backup before. Thank! Great videos!
You should probably delete this video and upload a video on how to do it the right way.
I played with the official pop os iso and found it lacking in features that are available in Mint. Deleted it in a couple hours, although I like that it is from an American company and may check it out in a few years and see if it's grown up a bit.
How would it work on real machine?
Why do this at all? What's the advantage?
Now waiting for upgrade Debian to Ubuntu
That's still the stock Ubuntu theme showing. You also need to use gnome-tweaks to select Pop application styling and icons.

Is Vega 56 or 65 or 2060 any good for Linux gaming ?? Which one will you suggest ??
Thanks man! I'm going to try it out on my Linux Mint 19.1!
It's a good quick update for Pop!_OS UI from Ubuntu, but missing things like System76-packaged drivers (in the system76-driver package) and the system restore feature available only from a full install; also, the CUDA, tensor-flow, and other stuff available by adding this repo:sudo echo "deb http://apt.pop-os.org/proprietary bionic main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pop-proprietary.listsudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key 204DD8AEC33A7AFFsudo apt update
