Update went smoothly. I had to change display port on video card as I have three monitors. On start up the annoying bars are gone that showed up on Mojave. The lack of 32 bit programs will require some work to find good replacements. Tonymac has always been a great resource. Thanks!

maltux1963, what version Clover are you running and what Kexts do you have? I have a similar setup and can only boot using my old clover from USB drive.

Clover Global Edition Version 5.6.1.0
used KextBeast to install AppleALC, Lilu and Whatevergreen.
Display port did not work until install completed.

Good luck!

I did my update directly from Mojave 10.14.6 Supplemental Update 2 two days ago. Upgrade was successful, but not as smooth as I hoped. I updated Clover from r4961 to r5070. I updated the kexts and added SSDT-ECUSBX.aml in Clover/ACPI/patched folder to resolve the apfs module start error. At first boot to Catalina, bluetooth was not available, so I added BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext in addition to BrcmFirmwareData.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext in my Library/Extensions folder. Other than these two minor issues, everything else work so far.
Updated the desktop with no issues. I had the apfs module start error when I tried to update the laptop. I used the same solution to add SSDT-ECUSBX.aml in Clover/ACPI/patched folder. After successfully updated to Catalina do I still need to keep SSDT-ECUSBX.aml in Clover/ACPI/patched folder?

Smoothest upgrade yet. Usually upgrades causes me to press the reboot button a few times, run verbose mode on startup and be very patient. This time though to problems whatsoever. I did upgrade my system recently to the latest version of every kext I had installed and also got Clover fully upgraded to the latest version.

Only problem I encountered I caused myself. I renamed my boot drive form Mojave to Catalina and forgot to update the clover configuration so that it knew which drive to boot off. Very quick fix though.
