Paul, please bottom-post on the mailing list. Also you do not need to PGP
sign messages to the list.

This won't help with errors that were not logged to a file, though.
When you try to boot the affected OS, can you log in on a text console?
If it's in GUI mode (e.g. blank screen) -- Ctrl+Alt+F2 through to F6
If it's stuck in text mode -- Alt-F1 to F6
(Ctrl-)Alt-F7 should re-display the graphical screen.
If you *can* log in in text mode, and you're using an Ethernet cable, try
sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade -y

Also, this means that Mint works fine? Which version of Mint?

I thought that you said that the netbook runs Lubuntu and worked OK?

You haven't narrowed down for us what output yet...
