    Moun was driving me bonkers, even choosing repositories was taxing. So I installed Synaptic & uninstalled Muon. Once I sorted the repos in Synaptic (at least I think so) everything's easy-peasy.

    Is this ok? Will I miss some critical updates? I wouldn't think so.

    For me it's so much easier to thin down my system looking through & choosing in Synaptic.

    SOLVED

    I was informed at Kubuntu to make sure I still have muon-updater installed, to get update notifications, which I won't get via synaptic on its own. As for repo management, to install the package software-properties-gtk, to get some ubuntu-specific options, such as ppa management, release upgrade notifications, and other taxing tasks.

    As soon I sorted the above I'm back with Synaptic which I've been using for over 10 years so it's much easier to navigate. And to uninstall all the packages that weren't needed.
