We've got outdated wikis, there are always some superfluous issues, so
IMO the hasty release model should be reconsidered. I don't notice
satisfying support for the software I'm using on Precise Pangolin.

Recommend to stay with the LTS or to do a new install. A "normal"
release is able to aim at getting upgraded to the next release, while a
LTS has got another priority.

Ubuntu is halfway between a rolling release and something outdated as
Debian is. That upgrading from a LTS to the hasty standard releases
could cause issues doesn't surprise me.
