When booting my lenovo laptop, all I see is:
Loading Linux 5.4.0-65-generic ... Loading initial ramdisk ...
And then in hangs there forever.
I used to be able to go into the GRUB menu and select
elementary, with Linux 5.4.0-40-generic and that would boot elementaryOS 5.1 successfully. But that option has now gone away in the GRUB menu. I believe what happened is at some point I ran
apt autoremove, which uninstalled that older linux kernel.
My question is how do I reinstall the older linux kernel (
5.4.0-40-generic) or how do I figure out why the newer linux kernel (
5.4.0-65-generic) isn't working.
Since I originally posted this, I have new information. I reinstalled elementary OS from a live USB and I found that will update the kernel to 5.4.0-65-generic and that boots just fine. I thought I had solved my problem, but then I ran
apt update and
apt upgrade and now my computer doesn't boot again. So I believe that sometime in the past month, one or multiple of those packages being upgraded is messing up the boot process on my laptop.
I reinstalled again, but this time only ran
apt update and here is what I get when I run
apt list --upgradeable: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/WwXHdkYkBx/
