Graphical gitches following recent security and software update on 20.10

Asked by Musa Attan on 2021-04-18

i have had this issue following a software and security update, i have a very amateur video just showing what it looks like, although i have noticed in other applications it is much worse then shown . I also noticed another question someone posted describing graphical glitches after an update at around the same time, although very little info was given so i cant be sure of that. I don't think this is screen tearing because i did not notice anything wrong after watching various screen tearing videos and the "tears" are in different places and move with images rather than staying stationary on the screen.

i was told that doing the following:
sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-intel
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel

would fix it, unfortunately it did not, this is not an issue i have ever had before and literally appeared out of no where, my specs are:

I suggest that you follow https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GraphicsTroubleshootingProcedure to collect diagnostic information.
In step 3 do not create a new question, but paste everything into this one which you have already created.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #3

Your package management system seems to be misconfigured (see all the warning messages about InRelease)
I suggest to repair that first, because a broken package management systems can cause that the newest updates are not installed.

What is the output of the command

find /etc/apt -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \;

Musa Attan (rangomcroony) said : #4

the output of "find /etc/apt -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \;"

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #5

ok, I see some errors:

1. remove all files in the sources.list.d subdirectory, because they are either empty anyhow, or not working because the related PPAs do not have software for Ubuntu groovy

sudo rm -v /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list

2. Issue the command

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and in the editor that opens mage the following changes:

Replace all occurrences of "focal" by "groovy"
Make sure that there is a comment indicator in front of each occurrence of "deb-src" (change "deb-src" to "# deb-src" where this is not already in place)

In line 4 change the text
"groovy main restricted amd64 groovy/universe Packages"
into
"groovy main restricted"

In line 5 change the text
"groovy groovy/universe Packages amd64"
into
"groovy main restricted"

Then save the file and close the editor and finally issue the command

sudo apt update

and copy/paste the output that we can check whether the warnings and errors have disappeared.

So I beleive that the errors from the PPA have dissapeared but I'm still having graphical glitches unfortunately

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #8

I suggest that you run the troubleshooting procedure again. Maybe this helps finding the cause.

Musa Attan (rangomcroony) said : #10

still having issues,
i am having weird flickering line near the activities tab and other places, not as pronounced but similar to [https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/jgql1y/plasma_519_fedora_33_kubuntu_2010_intense/], not sure but it might be related to this too [https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-Fusion-Discussions/Ubuntu-Studio-and-Kubuntu-20-10-corrupted-graphics/m-p/2306757#M140494]

btw i didnt notice this thread got marked as answered... oops

Musa Attan (rangomcroony) said : #11

quick update, although this does not solve the issue- i noticed a "fix". When logging in there is an option in the bottom right cog- clicking it opens a menu where you can choose "ubuntu" or "ubuntu with Wayland". I have no idea what these are and what is the difference between the 2 options but this graphical glitch doesn't seen to be there if i click the Wayland option. Hopefully this sheds some light onto the issue.

i still need to test to see if the issue is there with other applications when i choose Wayland but so far so good.

Musa Attan (rangomcroony) said : #12

After doing some more testing the issue is still there with Wayland but slightly less prominent

Musa Attan (rangomcroony) said : #13

[https://www.reddit.com/r/Ubuntu/comments/mrla66/ubuntu_2010_3d_graphix_broken_need_help_this/]

link to someone else having an identical issue to me, they also provided some additional info into what caused this

Musa Attan (rangomcroony) said : #14

So I upgraded to 21.04 just to get rid of this issue, unfortunately the issue still persists
