I'm running 16.04. I Wouldn't call it a disaster but I have had some
teething issues with this release. 

With my install the Gnome software manager almost always fails to find
many common packages, apparently this is because it won't list packages
that are missing some appdata. I did have some issues with installation
failures often needing to do:

> apt-get -f install

to fix. Recently this stopped being an issue, not sure why 

For missing software apparently in fedora you would run:

> gsettings set org.gnome.software require-appdata false

in order to see all available packages. Haven't figured out how to do
this for xubuntu yet. If anyone knows I would really like that info.
