These will be subject of another post.
However, whilst looking for when problems first occurred I found;-
intel-microcode marked in Synaptic as “installed (upgradable)”
The amd64-microcode is just marked “installed”. Not upgradable ?
After deleting the Intel code, I found that a kernel update will just re-install it.
See attached .png
Can anyone explain why Intel-microcode is used on non Intel CPU machine that has no onboard Intel chips, with the exception of one, non CPU, USB device?
