I already used the daily image; and yes I got the (re)installation to complete without crashing. BUT the freshly (re)installed Ubuntu system remained unstable and therefore unusable due to other bugs that were introduced or re-introduced by the two Ubuntu Updater packages pushed out since

I should add that, in researching old posts on these issues, I gather that nVidia driver(s) have been a factor; so note that the last Ubuntu Updater package prior to all this did also include an update to the nVidia driver package. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member

Sorry to say that I tried to install from images from both May and June of this year, obviously 20.04. Both failed with the same crash. And, like you, I need nvidia and other specific drivers. Even if you can get past the crash, other changes that have been made since mid-September are wreaking

These bugs started with a Ubuntu update just prior to Sept 14 (see post 103 above). By the 14th, there were initramfs problems on startup and the hang on spinning circle which forced hard power downs. Then on Sept 24, more updates installed including updates to grub, *nvidia drivers*, and some

Note that this bug also affects efforts to install older images, including 20.04 from May and June of this year: those installs crash also with this same error. This matters, because the bugs introduced by Updater changes since mid-September have made Ubuntu troublesome and unstable. Bugs that

Continues to occur even once the bug 1871268 install crash has been dealt with (installing from latest daily-live current image). So affects even a fresh install. Seemed to appear in mid-September updates along with recurrence of bug 1872159, the dreaded spinning Ubuntu logo hang on startup. So a

The fix for 1872159 (spinning logo hang on startup) has allowed me to turn the splash screen back on; and this error is not visible. I do, though, encourage completion of the fix for it since it rears its head when the splash screens have to be disabled. -- You received this bug notification

I am seeing much better stability of the Ubuntu distro today. I am working with a reinstallation from a 20.04.1 image from late August; I loaded it about a week ago hoping to recover from the 4 bugs I've been dealing with but still had problems. Today I ran Ubuntu Update AND went back to the open

With reference to post #132 above: If this is relevant to this issue I also am experiencing problems with switching drivers for the device on my systems that uses (or can use) a Ubuntu third party driver. Specifically nVidia for the GeForce 940MX. Changing between nVidia driver versions (all

Additional observation: I've tried using Ubuntu LTS 20.04 download images from July and August, selecting the option to install third party drivers. These images worked flawlessly at the end of the summer. But since the mid-September updates, even these earlier iso's of Ubuntu LTS 20.04 Desktop

Dimitri, I note your comment #106 about secureboot patches upstream. If I recall correctly, a linux security update came down through Ubuntu Updater about the same time or just prior to the LTS 20.04.1 updates in mid September. A number of issues with LTS 20.04.1 appeared following two "batches"
