This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed- bionic' to 'verification-done-bionic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-failed- bionic'.
If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

The problem seems to be that the TPM gets into a state where the partial self-test doesn't return TPM_RC_SUCCESS (meaning all tests have run to completion), but instead returns TPM_RC_TESTING (meaning some tests are still running in the background). A reboot can sometimes restore TPM functionality. This bug was originally reported on a Dell XPS 13, but has also recently been reported on a Dell Edge Gateway 3000. The bug has been confirmed to be fixed in the current development release (19.04/Cosmic). [Test Case] Cold boot a Dell XPS 13 or Dell Edge Gateway 3000 running 18.04 LTS Desktop or Server and grep for the following error log message: "tpm tpm0: A TPM error (2314) occurred continue selftest" Any attempts at using the TPM via tpm2-tss libraries or tpm2-tools should produce errors. As this bug is due to a race condition, ideally this test case would be run multiple times (20+ cold boots). Once the patch is installed the following error message may still be present in the syslog, however attempts to use the TPM should work: "tpm tpm0: A TPM error (2314) occurred attempting the self test" [Regression Potential] The chance of regression is low, as this patch was written by a well respected kernel developer with deep TPM experience. The patch is also being cherry-picked from the upstream stable and LTS kernels, and as mentioned, has already landed in Disco. [Original Description] After updating a Dell XPS 13 to 18.04 LTS, the TPM started to intermittently fail on cold boot. The following log messages could be observed in syslog: [ 0.801334] tpm_tis MSFT0101:00: 2.0 TPM (device-id 0xFE, rev-id 4) [ 0.812132] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (2314) occurred continue selftest [ 0.843629] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (2314) occurred continue selftest [ 0.895424] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (2314) occurred continue selftest [ 0.987230] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (2314) occurred continue selftest [ 1.159026] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (2314) occurred continue selftest [ 1.490819] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (2314) occurred continue selftest [ 2.142530] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (2314) occurred continue selftest [ 3.423100] tpm tpm0: TPM self test failed [ 3.456304] ima: No TPM chip found, activating TPM-bypass!
