    Ubuntu 18.04 system periodically hard freezing

    I installed Ubuntu 18.04 off usb flash drive iso to use Rstudio. I did the bare bones install rather than the version with suggested packages. Ubuntu was freezing periodically from the start, every 1-2 hours, typically after going AFK for about 5+ min and returning to an unresponsive keyboard/mouse. Rstudio was crashing periodically. Issue was GPU rendering. I switched it to software rending and crash stopped. Then I updated GPU drivers using sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall. Before autoinstall, when I ran "sudo apt purge nvidia-*", the system froze as well. After searching a few forums on what may solve my issue with system freezing, I've come across various solutions specific to hardware I don't have like an AMD GPU. I've realized two common themes though, the kernel crash dump solution (https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/servergu...rash-dump.html) as well as the logs application solution. The logs application solution seems much faster so i'm trying that here first, but would love to know the ideal way to troubleshoot this issue.

    Here is the "important" output from my Ubuntu 18.04 Logs Application:

    Thank you for any help!

    If my post is lacking some essential info, any help on what to further include would be appreciated. I'm so new i'm not even sure what I could further include that would help solicit some support on the question.

    Thanks.

    Hi, welcome to the fora.
    A good starting point is a hardware description. Please copy
    Code:
    sudo lshw -sanitize > lshw.txt
    and paste it to the command line, run it and post lshw.txt in CODE tags.

    Re: Ubuntu 18.04 system periodically hard freezing

    With hardware this new I would not struggle with stale software like 18.04. Better to go straight to a clean install of 19.10. Run it for a while with the default Nvidia software and see how it goes.

    A lot of BIOS updates are available. Next step will be taking a look at them.

    Re: Ubuntu 18.04 system periodically hard freezing

    I went with 18.04 because it's the most recent stable supported version of Ubuntu, so my thinking was that it's best for learning R and python programming based on an assumption that it'd be most commonly used in the git community. Let me know if this was misguided.

    So I'll install both the BIOS updates and Ubuntu 19.10, I suppose. Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction. I have a 32gb flash drive that i've reformatted at just "FAT32" and erased all the files from it. I've downloaded the most recent BIOS release from the page you linked. Am I supposed to grab the instant flash version I assume? I read the how-to page located here:
    http://www.asrock.com/support/BIOSIG.asp?cat=BIOS9

    Seems very easy and I think the BIOS are independent of OS so I can just do that update now with the flash drive I've emptied, reformated to FAT32, and loaded the unzipped BIOS file to?

    Thanks again for all the help! I'll get through this BIOS install tonight and then hopefully the OS tomorrow if I find some time. My windows partition is still on my harddrive and I can see it in files browser, but it's no longer a boot option after i reformatted my old Ubuntu so i'll need to deal with that after all this as well... :/

    I rolled the dice and updated my BIOS successfully and watched a video about the Ubuntu differences. I'll update to Ubuntu 19.10 tomorrow morning and see how that goes. Thanks.

    All recent Buntu releases come with an R version available in the repository. New Buntus contain new version of all applications (R, Gimp, Libreoffice...) and provide better support for new hardware.

    Here you can see which R packages are available. Being an R programmer myself I would not be satisfied with the default 3.4.4 delivered in 18.04.

    I suggest a clean install of 19.10, not an upgrade in place. Just the plain installation without tweaking drivers to begin with.

    Don't trust anyone's claim about this and that being 'stable' but test a number of alternatives on your own hardware (like we do now).
