    Post results for
    Code:
    dkms status
    It is not really safe to put a hold on kernel updates as they contain the security patches. If you have an issue after a kernel update, check
    Code:
    modinfo rtl8812au | egrep 'filename|vermagic'
    See if the vermagic kernel info matches the filename info

    rtl8812au, 4.3.14, 4.15.0-20-generic, x86_64: installed
    rtl8812au, 4.3.14, 4.15.0-29-generic, x86_64: installed
    (the nvidia driver is something I've added since the rtl8812au driver started working again)

    I know, I guess I'm just used to Mint which notifies of kernel updates and then lets you manually flag them for install so there are no nasty surprises.

    Thank again.
