Ubuntu 20.04 LTS does not start after kernel update

Asked by David Tantono on 2021-06-04

Hi
I already submit the bug report ([Bug 1930794]) for the future solution. The main problem is that I got a notification to update my kernel to 5.8.0-55 and when I update and reboot my PC. The desktop does not start and when I downgrade my kernel 5.8.0-53. Again, it does not work either. Finally, I have to reimage my PC from the scratch and I lose all of my local data in this situation. But, since this problem is quite common and extremely annoying to my productivity. Is there any stopgap solution for this?

Hi,
I just used xubuntu 20.04 with older kernel 5.8.043 and it works better than 5.8.053 and 5.8.055. So, I wish to keep this kernel on the GRUB for longer-term or I want to keep more than 2 available kernels on the GRUB. IS it possible?

Can you help with this problem?
