I tried and succeeded! :-)

But not with do-release-upgrade.

I replaced the distro codename "xenial" with "bionic" in /etc/apt/sources.list and ran "apt full-upgrade".

Adding "Indicator Applet (Complete) Factory" to panel made WiFi and other icons appear for me.

Regarding the battery indicator after upgrading to 18.04, it seems UPower peer the battery with the keyboard for some reason. In other words, it thinks it's the battery of the keyboard and not of the computer.

I guess it's due to a bug in the kernel driver, but I'm too lazy to check.

Here is the patch I applied on upower to work around the problem:

do-release-upgrade could also succeed, but it needs some more free space on the boot partition, which is quite small, retained from the original image. This is also valid for the intermediate upgrade attempts, whose GUI appears in the desktop environment, as they try to upgrade the kernel.
