Thanks for the suggestions . . . I'll check into them when I get back to Lu
in a few days. One of my problems is that since I'm rotating OSs each day,
I don't know where each system is vis the kernel. Possibly kinetic is a
"5.13" base system, but I did see "5.15" in the upgrade list. Yesterday I
was in Tumbleweed, which is 5.19 . . . and then today I'm in Deb Sid, which
I thought would be like 5.20??? but, nope, uname -r shows "5.10" . . . .
The good news is that whatever blew up in the middle or end of the apt, the
kinetic system rebooted into the GUI . . . . It was just a rare instance
of a "hang" in the apt dist-upgrade.
