I then had the good idea of updating AMDGPU Pro. Depending on which page you land on, you either get version 16.40, 17.40, or 17.50 advised, the latter being the one advised when going through support.amd.com.
All of them lead me to not being able to log in correctly. I first get the same error I had before (see lvmetad not active ubuntu--vg-root clean NO BOOT due to AMDGPU-PRO).

E: Impossible de trouver le paquet xserver-xorg-video-modesetting-amdgpu-pro
(or in English:
unable to find xserver-xorg-video-modesetting-amdgpu-pro package)
This package is nowhere to be found.
I wanted to downgrade back to 17.10, but I am unable to find a link to the
.tar on the AMD website.
I can however access a terminal with CTRL+Alt+F1. So meanwhile, I have uninstalled amdgpu-pro completely with
amdgpu-pro-uninstall . I can reuse Ubuntu, albeit without all the perks of the drivers (like sound through HDMI).
Note that I am using 16.04 and I regularly update everything. I believe the origin of the problem is a new kernel. Mine is
