Description of the change

d/network-manager.postinst: Trigger Netplan migration on install/upgrade

Modify the connection's ID (con-name) to trigger its migration.
The Netplan integration will translate the original NM keyfile from
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/* to a YAML file located in
/etc/netplan/90-NM-*.yaml and re-generate a corresponding keyfile in
After successful migration, the original ID (con-name) is restored.

question: What happens to the original keyfile?

If it's not removed, then re-running the script (cf ) will overwrite the previous migration's yaml, which might have changed in the mean time.

The original keyfile in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/* is being deleted by the Netplan integration automatically during the process, after it got translated into /etc/netplan/90-NM-*.yaml successfully.

I.e. that would be within the first "nmcli con mod ..." call for each connection profile.

Left a couple of comments on the version comparison line which might bear some thought (but I'm unsure if they're actually relevant without additional context).
