I have test-upgraded my test site (which is a copy of the productive site with slightly less content, but duplicate files, layout, CSS) and upgrading failed. Miserably.
First, there was one (1) SQL error:
UPDATE `users_objectpermissions` SET `permName` = 'tiki_p_read_article' WHERE `permName` = 'tiki_p_topic_read' AND `objectType` = 'topic' Duplicate entry '4dadd7eebd7a5fc8790114f9f5aaa8b6-topic-Anonymous-tiki_p_read_art' for key 'PRIMARY'
For the moment, I checked the checkmark in order to proceed (it's not the productive site anyway, and I have a backup of both the files and the DB).
After logging in, I was flabbergasted. I thought my layout (originally done by Gary to imitate a standard layout of 12.14 that was dropped with later updates: Geo) was kind of conservative, absolutely nothing fancy. Standard, classic Tiki layout with 3 containers, a header, a left module zone, a center wiki content and a right module zone.
There is one horizontal menu which was VERY hard to create on 18.8 (because creating menus from scratch is simply not possible (at all) on 18.8., due to an unfixed bug. I made it possible with a trick, I created a second standard menu, exported it, modified it as needed, and re-imported.
Since at that time I did not want to indulge in the depths of the CSS, I created style directives in the context of the menu, which worked satisfactorily. Most of the site is classic Wiki content. Some articles for news, a calendar (which was horribly bug-ridden and thus dysfunctional on 18.8) and a small shop (CART).
So nothing fancy at all. No categories (besides what CART brought with it), no perspectives, etc.
And now the catastrophe: The left module zone is now sitting on the right, and the right module zone went to far-right. Yes, both left and right module zone now sit on the right-hand side.
The menu is a mess with wrong fonts, wrong sizing, wrong spacing etc.
When I call the control panels, they come up as one column (!) in a seemingly endless page, hardly usable at all.
This is the worst upgrade I have ever witnessed. And I thought 12.14 -> 18.2 was a bad. Little did I know...
I checked the look & feel setting, found nothing special in there, it is still on "classic Tiki 3 container". The admin setting was off, to "1 container", but setting that to "Classic Tiki 3 container" to match the site's default changed nothing...
If Tiki keeps breaking my layouts, I am seriously considering to let go. If it weren't for more than one decade of content, I would be gone already. Enough is enough.

Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
