I saw this happen to me a couple of weeks ago. No matter what session I
selected, it always ended up using Wayland. Not sure why it stopped
** Summary changed:
- On fresh install or fresh boot greeter always show "ubuntu" though selected
session may be ubuntu-wayland
+ Both "Ubuntu" and "Ubuntu on Wayland" result in Wayland. No way to use X11.

Boot up, check selected session at the greeter - it will say "ubuntu"
Log in, ck. env., it will actually be ubuntu-wayland
$ env | grep -i wayland
From above log out, switch session in greeter to wayland on ubuntu,, switch
back to ubuntu, login.
Now you'll be in an ubuntu session
log out from above ubuntu session, log into ubuntu-wayland session, reboot.
At greeter notice it says "ubuntu" selected.
