I tried doing Ubuntu's "upgrade to new distribution" thing on my wife's 
laptop. It had worked perfectly when moving her from Ubuntu 14 to 16. It 
cranked away, announced that it was done and ready to reboot. Rebooted 
but had no working network connection. It appears that Ubuntu 18 decided 
to use a whole new application for network manager, and upgrading in 
place I guess couldn't be bothered to translate the existing network 
configuration to the new application.

Doesn't quite seem like an LTS version to me, either.
