Restarting in the middle of any sort of install is generally gonna give you a bad time.

Don't run do-release-upgrade. If you want a higher versioned distribution deploy a higher versioned distribution. At least that's the case for servers. Then you deploy software on it.

You could take the same approach for desktop. Purposefully avoid anything of real value being outside of /home. If something has to be there you symbolically link it with /home. Then you just move your home folder over in a single deploy step. I've been burned too many time doing release upgrades. There was a period of time in which it didn't matter which laptop it was, for several versions in a row doing the upgrade would bork the graphics.

Also I ditched ubuntu entirely around that time. Went to debian, then mint, then arch, then manjaro. Will never run ubuntu desktop again. I do use it for server though.
