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.

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 nvidia. --- ProblemType: Bug ApportVersion: 2.20.11-0ubuntu27.3 Architecture: amd64 CasperMD5CheckResult: skip CurrentDesktop: ubuntu:GNOME DistroRelease: Ubuntu 20.04 InstallationDate: Installed on 2020-06-29 (0 days ago) InstallationMedia: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS "Focal Fossa" - Release amd64 (20200423) Package: accountsservice 0.6.55-0ubuntu12~20.04.1 PackageArchitecture: amd64 ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 5.4.0-39.43-generic 5.4.41 Tags: focal Uname: Linux 5.4.0-39-generic x86_64 UpgradeStatus: No upgrade log present (probably fresh install) UserGroups: adm cdrom dip lpadmin lxd plugdev sambashare sudo _MarkForUpload: True To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/accountsservice/+bug/1885452/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
