I'm running Ubuntu in Oracles VirtualBox 6.1
I previously installed and have been using 18.04 for quite some time now.
Ran updates to get latest and following install of normal updates decided to upgrade to 20.04
After update I was required to create a new user, as if the one I had been using didn't exist.
I had no other choice so I created a new user and established settings.
On boot up I am only offered one choice, the new user created with the upgrade.
I can log in to the original account using the Not listed link.
However at this point my prior (original account the one used to upgrade) user account does not appear in the Users GUI only the new account does
My prior users home directory is still there and all files are present.
Which I presume is why add a new user via the GUI or command line does not allow creation of that userid
What happened and how do I get the original user to appear at boot and in the GUI?
