Under Ubuntu 18.04, since an automatic update from Thunderbird 59 to 60 I've lost Lightning and of course all my appointments!!
The Mozilla message says Lightning 5.4 is (disabled).
What can I do to retrieve my appointments??

The current version of Lightning for Thunderbird 60.2.1 is version 6.2.2.1.

Try opening a terminal and type: sudo apt-get install xul-ext-lightning.

That will install Ubuntu's version of the Lightning extension and you should have no problem with updates after that.

I tried the above and it did not work. However, I found that in order for this to work, you have to make sure all of thunderbird and lightning have been removed first:
sudo apt-get remove xul-ext-lightning
sudo apt-get remove thunderbird

then, doing
sudo apt-get install xul-ext-lightning
will install thunderbird with lightning
