    20.04 LTS keyboard not working

    Hello,

    I've ben using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS for a month without any issue. Yesterday, I tried to log in with my keyboard but it didn't respond. My mouse is working and I managed to enter and launch the terminal. As suggested in some pages, I typed "sudo apt-get install-xserver-xorg-input-all", pressed enter and rebooted but it made no difference.
    I also tried getting to the Gurb and I was able to type in it, so I assume the issue is not due to the keyboard itself.
    My laptop is an Acer E5-511, if it helps.

    Does anyone have an idea how I could resolve this?

    Guessing that you have updated to kernel 5.4.0-44. Would use kernel 5.4.0-42 or earlier, for now, or an external keyboard(wireless works for me)

    Thank you! I've just switched to a previous kernel and it does work. I'll try with an external keyboard when I can.
