Stuck upgrading from Trisquel 7..9 to Trisquel 10 from dvd

On a Minifree X200 that started out on Trisquel 7.0, with an ext4 root and a btrfs user drive.

This is the machine whose operating system I don't trust because I never got to the end of:

I booted Trisquel 10, split between a loopback mount of the iso on a thumb drive, and the iso image burnt onto a DVD.

I ran the install icon on the desktop.

I get to a loop between three pages of that app:

- Install (as superuser)
-- selected "Install alongside Trisquel GNU/Linux 9.0.2 Etonia

- Install Trisquel alongside ...
-- clicked through, without asking to change the sizes
-- "An error occurred while writing the changes to the storage devices. The rsize operation has been aborted."

- Installation type
-- never shows partitions or un-greys "Install now"

- Install (as superuser) reappears

Where do I look for the logs that give specific detail about what's going wrong?

If you don't trust the operating system why do you keep it? Nuke it and be done with it.

And do what with the machine? It's running LibreBoot without a bios.

I am not sure I understand everything but I am guessing jxself's suggestion is to not "install alongside Trisquel 9" but to use the entire disk, so overwrite everything.
