recently updated kernal to 5.3.0-53 from 5.3.0-51 but causes failure to shut down, seems to go through process, but Ethernet cable light and fan stay on, switch on next morning doesnt work untill a hard switch off (long press on power button) perfor

Asked by Peter on 2020-06-06

Since i recently updated kernel to 5.3.0-53 from 5.3.0-51 using linux Mint 19.3 i have had shut down issues and have had to revert to ver 51.
 System appears to shut down as normal but ethernet cable light stays on and the fan also. The following morning i have to use a hard power off before i can switch on again this happens with on screen graphics shutdown and with sudo shutdown -h now.
I am assuming it's to do with kernel change due to the timing of the start of the problem. But as this is a Ryzen 3 laptop also wonder if it could be the Ryzen bug... though i've not noticed any indication of that before. Is this a known problem?
(I realise this is an Ubuntu page, but was directed here by one of the Mint ones where i was trying to find an answer)
I do have the system set up to dual boot with windows, but that's worked fine and still does apart from an occasional clock offset issue. system mostly used for web browsing, Mail, Libre Office, Freciv, Wesnoth, occ Euler or Scilab, R, Inkscape....

Linux Mint is not supported by the Ubuntu community or Canonical. Mint's support community is entirely separate from Ubuntu's. It has separate forms and support channels.

I suggest you post on the Mint forum here:

None of the "Ubuntu based" distributions are supported here. There are distribution agnostic forums on the Internet but this isn't one of them.

Thanks for the pointer, l will try there, i was a bit surprised to be directed to a Ubuntu page from the mint one i was looking in, but supposed that it might be because they built on your kernel base (... standing on the shoulders giants. etc) Again thanks for the help, hope this was not too great a distraction.

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.

Sorry to add after 'solved' but thought i should put in the link i found on Mint forum in case anyone else lands here. Note Solved in the sense of not relevant to this forum, the issue appears as yet unsolved, related to ryzen cpu and kernel some how
