I just updated from Mojave to Catalina. No problems at all. The only slightly confusing thing was figuring out what partition to boot the installer from in Clover after the first reboot. The first time I ran it from the 'preboot', and the next couple of times from 'install macOS' partition until it disappeared. That seemed to be the correct choice (or didn't hurt anything if it wasn't).

Replaced Lilu, AppleALC, and Whatevergreen kext into /Library/Extensions/ folder and /System/Library/Extensions/.

Installed from software update.
Not sure how long it took, but just checked back after watching a hour and a half long movie finding it completely done.

Updated from 10.14.6 Mojave.

3rd party kexts belong only in /Library/Extensions/ folder and not /System/Library/Extensions/.

Two days ago I updated my SO from Mojave to Catalina. Everything went right while the installing, but I've lost my sound and usbs 3.0. Anyone know how to fix it?
