I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.2 desktop in a virtual machine under VMWare
Fusion Pro V11.1.0 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.5, all on a 15inch 2018 Macbook

I've been running this Ubuntu 18.04.2 VM without problem for many months 
without problem.
Yesterday, I did 'sudo apt update; sudo apt upgrade'.  Upon rebooting, the 
system hangs immediately after displaying the splash screen.  I never see a 
login screen.  And I can't use Ctrl+Alt+F2 to navigate to a console/tty login.

I can SSH into the system however.

I've found that I can work around the hang/freeze if I uncomment the following 
line in /etc/gdm3/custom.conf;

After uncommenting the WaylandEnable=false line and rebooting, then I
see the login prompt as expected and I can then log in and use the
system normally again.

After the 'apt upgrade' my system is running linux kernel 4.15.0-51, as
shown in this 'uname -a' output;
