I have recently come across a very annoying issue. It seems that whenever I log in at the login screen in elementary, the screens remains blank, showing only the wallpaper. No UI loads, and I cannot use hotkeys such as LSuper+t to access the terminal. Some notes: this occured after I updated to the latest software patch. I also added the following lines to /etc/bash.bashrc if that is of any use

printf "${GREEN}"
figlet -f mono9 "Elementary"

What is likely the cause of this issue, and how can I repair it?

Thanks in advance!

Edit: manually removing the code above from /etc/bash.bashrc didn't help
