Xfce install and setup

Downloaded xfce and installed without issues.
Update had errors and would not update because of errors on Tela-xxxxxxxxx.
Was able to move by that but a new user may not be able to move by it easily.
Over all there is a lot of eye candy, more than what I would like to see but many users would likely love it.
What I myself is looking for and have with Arch is a bare bone xfce desktop witch I could build onto. ( that's just me )
Will drop in from time to time and see what's happening and wish you good folks all the best. :hugs:

the solution is to update with following command

Because we have

(1/2) Creating Timeshift snapshot before upgrade...

so, if something fail on next boot, use last working snapshot from grub.

Yes that's correct and for a new user who doesn't know the tty that would create issues.
The best way to handle this is to create a new updated xfce ISO so to stream a flawless install. :+1:
