This question already has an answer here:

After installing some updates (I can't remember which exactly), my Ubuntu 18.04 machine won't boot (the screen remains black) unless I boot into GRUB and select the second option which has (systemd) at the end.

enter image description here

Does anyone know how I can select this option as standard or maybe fix the problem itself?
