Hold Shift right after powering up your pc. The Grub menu will appear. Use the keyboard to select booting with the previously working kernel. After logging in, Update Manager - View - Linux kernels - select the one that wasn't working for you, Remove.

On my Oldie (at least 10 years) desktop I use "Esc" during power up
to go to GRUB.
