Makes it easier to copy n paste
I have just put ota-4-RC (2018-W25) on my m10fhd.
To get the adb,to work.
I get developer page on the device,
Then connect to my PC, with a terminal already open,after a few seconds it will bring up the ALLOW connection screen,or i have to enter adb devices in terminal, then start ubports-installer ,then it recognizes my device,and i can adjust what it installs,once i enter my passcode,all is done by the devices.
Just in case you get someone with a problem.
Add the way to get Fastboot Mode for all UBports supported devices and some other tips.
If you have suggestions for improvement, you are welcome.

I am still working on installing ubports on my BQ Aquaris M10 HD Ubuntu edition- not given up yet!! I have followed advice on the forum without success.
I have downloaded the deb file extracted it and opened the software install. I checked the permissions.
I get a blue square with install box but when I click the box I get authenticate request and it returns to the blue box page. The installer does not seem to install anything.The tablet is in fastboot and developer modes . I am unable to progress further and would be grateful for your advice.
@wdnp2 Which OS version are you using ?
Generally, Ubuntu 16.04 is recommended.
I have tried the Appimage and deb versions 01.21 that appear on the ubports web site with no luck. I save the files then nothing else happens. I don't think they download properly. I am running Ubuntu 18.04LTS. Any advice?
@wdnp2 hi, I've edited your post to make it more readable. You don't need to paste OP's extra-long text to reply btw
@wdnp2 I tested the other the day, just for the sake of it, Ubuntu 18.04 + installer (snap, latest) +
fastboottools and the installation worked great (YMMV)
Sorry am new to this. What do you mean by OP and btw?
@wdnp2 "original poster" & "by the way"

@wdnp2 Op=Original Poster and btw= by the way hope that helps
I click on the deb file on ubports website and a file appears on my computer. I am unable to get any further than another file containing a blue button with install on it!
I have not tried the snap because its new to me and unfamiliar.

snapdinstalled on your computer? Ubuntu 18.04 and Snap packages are a well tested combo.
I get the following
william@LaptopL750:~$ snap install ubports-installer --edge
error: snap "ubports-installer" is not available on edge for this architecture
(i386) but exists on other architectures (amd64).
Am still trying to install ubports on my bq aquaris with no success
I installed snapd and tried snp but got nowhere
I am definitely in the correct directory here and get the following
patricia@patricia-R59P-R60P-R61P:~$ sudo dpkg -i ubports-installer_0.1.21-beta_amd64.deb
dpkg: error processing archive ubports-installer_0.1.21-beta_amd64.deb (--install):
package architecture (amd64) does not match system (i386)
Errors were encountered while processing:
Any further comments?

The issues you are having is because you are trying to install a 64bit deb package on a 32 bit system.
I am not aware if there are any 32 bit packages floating around somewhere you could try ...

I couldn't find any 32bit packages. But maybe you could follow the instructions of how to run from source that are described here?
Or you could try getting access to a 64bit system and trying the regular installer (snap or deb) on there.
@wdnp2 If your hardware is 64 bits compatible, you can use a bootable Ubuntu USB stick: https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/tutorial-create-a-usb-stick-on-ubuntu#0
