'Among those applications upgraded in this release is GIMP 2.10, which 
saw its release shortly before the release of Ubuntu Studio 18.04. Due 
to a library conflict between GIMP 2.10 and MyPaint, we had to make the 
hard decision to drop MyPaint from the default installation of Ubuntu 
Studio beginning in 18.10, citing other tools, such as Krita, as filling 
a similar role in graphical art production. As such, if both are 
installed and you wish to upgrade to Ubuntu Studio 18.10, *you must 
uninstall GIMP or MyPaint for the upgrade to be successful.*'
