it gets stuck booting up on the screen that say ubuntu touch with the five blinking dots.
Now long did you wait ?
Maybe not enough. Hard reset means like first boot. On a N5 i have installed ubp on it took like 20 mn first boot.
By hard reboot, I mean I turned the phone off by holding down the power button until it shut off, not by telling it to "shutdown", or "reboot".
Is there anything else I can try before I resort to this? I went through hell and back last time I installed it. I lost many blood sweat and tears. I am running linux mint, but I found out I had to use the snap installation version of the installer instead of the debian package, but linux mint has now disabled snap for some reason, so I will have to find a spare machine that I can throw a different distro on to get the snap installation on the computer. Even linux mint 19 did not work with snap well.

@Edward-Wilhelm It really ought to go through easily this time or try the appimage. You did all the hard stuff last time. If you can wait a bit I'll have a think it's late for me now brain running slow, or maybe someone else will have an idea. You could try switching it off, fully charging it a see what happens, i'm half sure I had this issue but can't remember how I fixed it other than the installer. As I said it's late.
Okay I tried the full charge and boot to no avail. I managed to dig up a 32 bit machine from the bronze age and put ubuntu mate bionic beaver on it. I will try to re do installer with snap installation from this machine.
Does anyone know if usb 2.0 is a requirement?
No installer for a 386 chipset. Back to the drawing board...

@Edward-Wilhelm You can get Mint to use snaps check
the web As for the installer on your existing machine it should go through you got there before should be easier this time. Try booting the device while it is connected to the power source.
I never could get it to work on my existing machine with mint. I had to use my brother's computer running pop OS. I tried three different mint machines and it failed every time.
@Lakotaubp Okay I'm on Ubuntu Mate on a 64 bit machine on live boot .
sudo apt update sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot sudo snap install ubports-installer
I started ub ports installer and plugged in phone.
Then I booted the phone to recovery mode by holding down power button and bottom volume button.
Next I ran
Next I chose to select device manually, followed the steps on the installer and let it do its thing. 10 to 15 mins later, the phone rebooted completely with all data still intact.
I highly recommend using Ubuntu Mate Liveboot for installations of Ubuntu Touch. It is the only time the installer has worked flawlessly. I also tried several other distros in live boot including regular Ubuntu 18 lts and 20 lts. They did not work when I ran
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
because it said the packages couldn't be found.
Ubuntu 18 lts Mate get 10 out of 10 stars in my book as the best installation distro period.
