I had Juno installed on my new setup. The sound wasn't working on it so I had installed brand new Kernel 5.2.7 and everything was working flawlessly. Since my system is brand new I had no choice but to opt for a bleeding edge kernel.

Now yesterday I got some updates I am not exactly sure what they were but I can only discern one or 2 was for plymouth. After that my system never worked properly.

On log in screen I get constant flashes and if somehow I manage to type in the password and enter the desktop, its gets logout after a screen flash.

enter image description here

and this doesn't stop and after I get the above error message. Not sure how I move forward from here.

Anyway, I move to tty1 and its very slow. I manage to login to tty1 and I couldn't restart or shutdown, sometimes it says init not accessible or something like that. I had to force it with shutdown -f skipping fsck or reboot -f .

enter image description here

Anyway how do I fix it? My system was working fine up unitl that ghastly update. Elementary OS is full of bugs, the BT never worked but I digress, its imperative for me to get it fixed. I am also getting segfault error and similar error as Image 2 during boot.

I did run fsck -f across all my partitions and none but 1 ntfs threw bad block error which I fixed using fsck, but to no avail. How do I circumvent the issue?

Please help.

Here is my system spec form Linux Mint live USB.
