I forgot to mention that, after the "Oh no! Something has gone wrong" I also 
get, in fact, logged out automatically and sent to login screen and after I 
login the "Oh no! Something has gone wrong" appears again. After pressing 
ctrl-alt-f3 and ctrl-alt-f2 repeatedly, the desktop appears eventually. 
However, I found another interesting fix! I reinstalled ubuntu and checked: 
"ask for password every time I sign in" and not as I previously selected, which 
was "log in automatically". I could sudo apt upgrade with no problem, on 
default GDM, no freezes, crash stalls etc.
As I previously mentioned, using LightDM is also a fix. By installing and 
activating it before anything else, sudo apt upgrade runs well, but, I noticed 
that when accountsservice is getting set up (on GDM it is the point when 
computer crashes) the computer still freezes and flickers about 2-3 seconds, 
but no crash.

Bug description:
  After a fresh install of Focal Fossa and running sudo apt update and sudo apt 
upgrade, when the upgrade reaches "setting up accountsservice" the PC freezes, 
then crashes. This was reproducible on another computer (laptop). I reinstalled 
Ubuntu and put the package on hold. Later, I found that by installing and 
activating lightdm, this problem was remediated. Found this solution 
accidentally, while I was looking to correct login screen loops after I 
installed the nvidia drivers. This is unrelated, since the laptop does not have
