    Re: Problems with EFI Boot

    Good morning,
    I do not know how and I do not know why but this morning my computer started with ubuntu 16.04.4, since October 4 I have an important work deadline I would like to block all updates.
    After the work deadline, I want to do a clean installation.
    Should I close this thread and open a new one later or can I use this?

    Thank you all for answering.

    Probably best to start new thread then, if you still have issues.

    But make sure you have good backups, now, while system is working. I prefer rsync as then I can script it & add a few extra commands in script.

    Run Software and Updates, and under the "Updates" tab, turn off any automatic updates. You can still manually update when you want to.
