I did the suggested update today. After rebooting my computer, it has crashed twice after just a few minutes of running. Any ideas?

$ ls -al /var/crash total 129052 drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 4096 Nov 28 07:45 . drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 4096 Sep 8 14:48 .. -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Nov 28 07:45 .lock -rw-r----- 1 tharpa tharpa 292617 Nov 27 22:15 _usr_bin_desktopnova-daemon.1000.crash -rw-r----- 1 tharpa tharpa 3985870 Nov 27 22:36 _usr_bin_lxqt-session.1000.crash -rw-r----- 1 tharpa tharpa 4389788 Nov 22 08:43 _usr_bin_pcmanfm-qt.1000.crash ---------- 1 tharpa tharpa 89956352 Nov 27 19:16 _usr_lib_chromium-browser_chromium-browser.1000.crash -rw-r----- 1 tharpa tharpa 33167682 Nov 24 09:46 _usr_lib_libreoffice_program_soffice.bin.1000.crash -rw-r----- 1 root root 241994 Nov 27 23:02 _usr_sbin_aptd.0.crash -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Nov 27 23:02 _usr_sbin_aptd.0.upload -rw-r----- 1 tharpa tharpa 92476 Nov 27 19:26 _usr_share_cinnamon-screensaver_cinnamon-screensaver-main.py.1000.crash -rw-rw-r-- 1 tharpa tharpa 0 Nov 22 13:27 _usr_share_cinnamon-screensaver_cinnamon-screensaver-main.py.1000.upload

Just crashed again.

Not sure how to read the .crash files. I guess they're binary files, because they sure nothing when opened in a text editor.

  • My upgrade to 18.04 had no errors, and the resulting system was stable and ran fast. How is your system different from mine? – user535733 Nov 28 '18 at 1:32
  • @user535733 lol You thought I was saying that no one in the world was running it successfully? Tell me how yours is and I'll tell you how mine is different. Don't leave out any details! – Tharpa Nov 28 '18 at 4:10
  • No, I was subtly telling you that the question is too broad. Sorry that didn't come across. There could be many realistically-possible causes, and whole archipelago of weird or corner-case causes. Are you asking for troubleshooting advice? Are you really asking for a vast list of largely-irrelevant 'ideas' and opinions? Or are you asking for something else? – user535733 Nov 28 '18 at 13:28

    Edit your question with any more details that you can supply, and the terminal output of ls -al /var/crash. Report back to @heynnema – heynnema Nov 28 '18 at 15:28
