Upgrading Jennings from Ubuntu 16.04 to 20.04

Jennings has been running Ubuntu 18.04 for a while in partition /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root2. Rather than upgrade it to 20.04, I thought I’d upgrade the older Ubuntu 16.04 installation in partition /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root. Here’s what needed to change:

Change from Dropbox to pCloud

This is as simple as installing from pcloud.com and setting up a sync from ~/pcloud-sync to Applications/Keepass2Android.

Upgrade Keepass

Since upgrading to Keepass 2 (the .kdbx format), I don’t have to keep locking KeepassX to an old 1.x version. Unlock the version of KeepassX, delete it and install KeepassXC. Add the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+A for autotype.

DS411+II NAS Mounts

A new router has been installed since Ubuntu 16.04 was running. The old router would create DNS entries for each client based on their host name, so ds411p2 was valid. The new one, a Comcast XB6, doesn’t do that. The hosts are reachable through .local names, so the NAS needs to be referenced as ds411p2.local now. This fix was made in /etc/fstab, as well as the fix to mount CIFS with the mount option vers=1.0 (because the NAS is old and doesn’t support the newer default version).
