I had a similar issue a couple weeks ago. After a while I discovered that an additional hardware driver got auto activated after the update.

Gear menu > System Settings > Additional Drivers > THEN deactivate any active (green) driver that you find. They all should be deactivated (Gray) just like in the image below.
