[ubuntu-studio-users] Problem booting 18.04 DVD and workaround

Interestingly, since the failed upgrade and subsequent complete install on
my laptop, I've done the upgrade on two of my other PC's with no issues.
(As for the laptop, it appears to be something about having 3 monitors
while upgrading nvidia that causes a login loop after. If the extract
monitors are added after the fact, all is good...thanks nvidia!)

I have, on the other hand, found one annoying issue with 18.04 (in general,
not studio). I use Universal Devices java web app to access my home
Unfortunately it needs Java 9 or above. And apparently only 8 is supported
on 18.04 until September. Attempting to run the app under 8 and it throws a
security error.

Oh well... :(
