After installing latest updates (I think nvidia drivers were updated as well) I can't boot anymore. I get a black screen no matter what I try: adding nomodeset to boot options, choosing recovery mode or a different kernel.

I managed to login in console and I installed again all the latest updates. Everything is fine now, back to normal. :)

  • Curl + Alt + f1-f6 will spawn a try

  • My keyboard is not active here. The screen is black and the keyboard hasn't even started. Did that command give you a terminal? Jul 6, 2016 at 22:44
