Intel Microcode Update Bricked My Computer

Post by DrSooglemon » Wed Dec 04, 2019 12:18 pm

OK technically not bricked but the desktop wont start properly. I get a little pop up message saying that Cinnamon Desktop wont start and all I can see is the pointer against a black screen.

How do I uninstall this update?

Can you use Timeshift to go back before the update(s)?

Then apply the updates one at a time, rebooting between each, to see which one actually causes the problem.
