    Probably it's the fallout of AMD amending Wafer Supply Agreement with GlobalFoundries back in January 2019.
     
    The main point in the amendment, I quote:
    Basically, AMD is ditching GF in favor of TSMC for 7 nm and beyond, but they still have to fulfill the "above 7nm" (i.e., 14 & 12 nm) WSA with GF somehow.
     
    That's why the opt to move mid tier 1st gen 14 nm Ryzen products to 12 nm, freeing the existing 14nm line; and used the freed 14 nm slot to manufacture low-end Athlon 3000G.
     
    Which I would say it's a smart move, since a mature mass-production-ready manufacturing node (GF 12/14 nm) is still better than a struggling new node (Intel 10 nm) or a congested high-demand node (TSMC 7 nm)

    Unless you are on a very tight budget, this board is NOT recommended since it's a very basic board and lacks certain features like overclocking support, better I/O.
     
    Try a B450 board.

    At least Dell officially supports Ubuntu, as stated in their product specification for XPS lineup.
     
    Secure erase the SSD in BIOS (Or replace the SSD entirely) and install any certified OS you want.

    Recycle: dispose them responsibly.
     
    Edit: Actually, Skylake (with Sunrise Point chipset) and Polaris is not "old", they are still pretty competent. The i3 6100 excels at games that favors single thread performance. The RX 460 is meh at best, but still allows you to play some light titles better than an integrated graphic. For the B150 board, you could mod it to run Coffee Lake chip, if you are persistent.

    It will work, but the tweaking options may be limited compared to Z-series board paired with an unlocked K-series processor.

    Why not just get a laptop? For the same price, you may get a somewhat decent laptop, which is much smaller and much easier to carry around in a truck.

    You may have to enable XMP in BIOS to achieve the rated memory clock.
     
    Edit: Also, single channel memory is not ideal for the optimal performance of Ryzen based computer. Consider an upgrade to dual channel later.
