    Umm no, I don't see any specific PPA for the nvidia drivers, I guess I installed them the "regular" way. What do you mean by "patch kernel with driver"?

    Another kernel update came in today... The next reboot will show if history repeats.

    Re: Major issues with recent kernels > 5.8.0-31

    History repeats indeed - just got a fresh update to 5.8.0-40 yesterday and guess what - same issues. I don't think I should have to manually install these module-extra and headers packages for each new kernel update.
    Any ideas?

    Re: Major issues with recent kernels > 5.8.0-31

    Indeed, you shouldn't need to. AFAIK, the image package and the modules-extra package are pulled in by the same metapackage, so something funny must be happening. Let's look at a list of all of those packages you've installed:
    Code:
    dpkg --list | grep 'linux-' | grep -v '^rc'

    Re: Major issues with recent kernels > 5.8.0-31

    OK, your linux-generic, linux-headers-generic and linux-image-generic are all there, but are stuck at version 5.8.0.31. Normally those are the packages that pull in the new kernel. In your case, the new kernel (linux-image-5.8.0-41-generic) is pulled in by linux-modules-nvidia-460-hwe-20.04-generic-edge, but this doesn't pull in the linux-modules-extra-*-generic package.

    So the thing to do is to get linux-generic unstuck. What do you get from
    Code:
    apt-cache policy linux-generic linux-image-generic linux-headers-generic

    I see only focal sources. Can you show the contents of your sources.list?
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    Huh you're right, since I'm already on 20.10 this should be gorilla right... Strange. I don't remember when exactly I upgraded from 20.04, I think not long after it came out. Does an upgrade not automatically update my sources?

    Re: Major issues with recent kernels > 5.8.0-31

    A release upgrade does update your software sources. It seems that shortly after you installed the kernel upgrade to 5.8.0-31 on your well-functioning groovy system, your software sources were somehow reset to focal. Maybe something going wrong with a backup routine, like an accidental restore?

    It looks like your system was a well-functioning 20.10 system until after the release of 5.8.0-31, so most packages must be the proper versions for 20.10. I don't think many packages have been replaced by their 20.04 versions, as those typically have lower version numbers. My suggestion is that you backup your documents and get a 20.10 live disk ready (just in case), then change your software sources to groovy by editing your sources.list. Then see what upgrades the package manager wants to install.

    Lightbulb Re: Major issues with recent kernels > 5.8.0-31

    If it helps with the confusion, I did some cherrypicking with 20.04.1-LTS on an emachines®/acer® EL1210-09 (Acer Computer Corp. DA078L: Advance Micro Devices Athlon 64 LE-1620; nVIDIA nForce 780a MCP, C77 geForce GPU in northbridge by-passed with GF119 GPU in msi N610GT-1GD5-LP). I selected the Metapackages linux-{image,modules,modules-extra,modules-nvidia-390,headers,tools}-generic-hwe-20.04 (which pulled in appropriate Depends for just-released Kernel versions) , and the Packages nvidia-settings and libnvidia-{common,compute,decode}-390 from Synaptic; nvidia-dkms-390 proved unnecessary, and the EL1210 is stable, excepting a buggy OpenLP 2.9.2-1 (unrelated issue).

    @vleermuis Reading Post 14, I discovered a Metapackage goof: linux-modules-nvidia-460-generic-hwe-20.04-edge instead of linux-modules-nvidia-460-generic. The HWE and HWE-Edge Kernel updates are on a different schedule from the base Kernel updates. Bleeding-edge Kernel users should have the Metapackages linux-headers-generic-hwe-20.04-edge, linux-image-generic-hwe-20.04-edge, linux-modules-extra-generic-hwe-20.04-edge, (optional) linux-tools-generic-hwe-20.04-edge, and (specific to Kepler and newer geForce and QUADRO) linux-modules-nvidia-460-generic-hwe-20.04-edge, thereby synchronizing the new Kernel package downloads.

    Most intel® ExpressSets™ and AMD® RS-Series are fully supported in open source.
