This is my fault for not paying more attention to what I’m installing but have been looking how to solve issues on Ubuntu Core (and taking up others people time with it) when in fact, I had ubuntu server installed.
It’s not the easiest though - google “Ubuntu Core” and you get to https://www.ubuntu.com/core
There’s a subtle link that says “Download Ubuntu Core 18 now ›” that takes you to https://www.ubuntu.com/download/iot
big banner saying “Get Ubuntu for IoT”, big picture of a raspberry pi and a big green button “Install on Raspberry Pi 2 or 3”
Click that and it takes you to https://www.ubuntu.com/download/iot/raspberry-pi-2-3
now here I have to take responsibility because it says “Ubuntu Server” in massive letters, twice, but considering the path I took, others I imagine will do the same?
If you scroll down on https://www.ubuntu.com/download/iot then at the bottom under “Supported Platforms” is the link you need, that then takes you to the correct page:
There’s also no navigation item for Core - only IoT. Is Ubuntu Server or Ubuntu Core for IoT?
