When installing with separate /boot [e.g. Encrypted installation] -- the Automation for "Remove old kernels" in mintupdate is NOT being turned-on.
This is a needless issue, as you are basically guaranteed to end up with jammed/broken update, dpkg unable to extract, error error error!
Either that needs turning on by default for /boot installations -or- what about mintupdate having an "auto" setting for that function, which activates if system-snapshots active or /boot partition in use, otherwise honours any yes/no explicit setting?
Mintreport could warn about bad configurations, BUT I still think the mint installation shouldn't put you in jeopardy from the get-go on /boot systems.

Not a bug per-se, but the live-image last I checked still auto-mounts old "swap partitions" which only creates complications with partitioning, consider if this can be switched-off for mint 21.1 while looking at zram-config etc.

At least on a UK installation, mintreport complains that 'openoffice.org-hyphenation' is not installed.
This is a dummy/transitional/old package on all supported Ubuntu releases and so should no longer be installed.
Presumably, different packages should be checked instead, e.g. see: https://packages.ubuntu.com/jammy/openoffice.org-hyphenation

The installation screens / featured-software are outdated.
For example, kernel versions, "featured software" doesn't have Signal/Matrix and has old Skype etc.
For example, mentions VirtualBox and Wine but not Gnome-Boxes, Lutris, Proton, ...
Stuff for Mint-21.1 roadmap?

Adwaita theme is not an issue since the images were not merged yet.

Broadcom works but mintreport fails to show missing drivers. This is fixed in mintreport 1.3.3.

Adwaita theme works but it looks like the two files in /usr/share/cinnamon/thumbnails/gtk-3.0/ still show the old image.
