Many thanks for testing! :-) Did you copied it with rsync to an empty partition?

Yes
like this
Create a new partition and call it mate17
mount it to /media
then
sudo mount MATE_PowerPC_Remix_2017_0.2.img /mnt/mate
cd /mnt/mate
sudo rsync --stats --progress --numeric-ids -axAhHSP . /mnt /media/mate17

Hi All,

MATE 1.18 has been released and is available for ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC. :-)

New:

  • The entire MATE Desktop suite of applications and components is now GTK3+ only! (All GTK2+ code has been dropped including the --with-gtk build option)
  • Other updates

I successfully upgraded MATE to version 1.18.0 on ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC today and it works fantastic. Many thanks to the MATE developers. They have done a great job!

Cheers,
Christian

Today at 12:00 PM, the PowerPC architecture has been dropped. It is not possible to upgrade Ubuntu 17.04 PowerPC anymore. All PowerPC ISOs have been deleted. You can still download some deb packages from http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ and install them manually.

I uploaded the last ISOs to my web space.

Downloads:


Fortunately I was able to upgrade ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC before 12:00 PM. Today, there were a lot of ubuntu MATE artwork upgrades like wallpapers, themes, and icons.

I am working on a new test version of the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017. You can test the latest version of the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 if you like.

Dear developers,

Last year, I wrote[1] to let you know that the powerpc architecture would be
dropped from zesty as of Feature Freeze.

We are well into Feature Freeze at this point, so an update is overdue. As
of Feature Freeze in February, the status is that powerpc packages are no
longer considered for proposed-migration, and we have discontinued all CD
image builds for powerpc in zesty.

For the moment, uploads continue to be built for powerpc in Launchpad, and
packages are still published in the archive. You should expect both to be
discontinued before the 17.04 release.

Thanks,
