Last night I've upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 and now Chrome won't start.

10:20:00 /opt/google/chrome$ ./chrome
MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information
MESA-LOADER: failed to open i915 (search paths /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri:\$${ORIGIN}/dri:/usr/lib/dri)
failed to load driver: i915
MESA-LOADER: failed to open kms_swrast (search paths /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri:\$${ORIGIN}/dri:/usr/lib/dri)
failed to load driver: kms_swrast
MESA-LOADER: failed to open swrast (search paths /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri:\$${ORIGIN}/dri:/usr/lib/dri)
failed to load swrast driver

Also other apps start randomly with screen defects.

kernel 5.4.0-39
Gigabyte H61N-USB3 16GB RAM
i3250 (intel HD graphics 2500)
no additional video cards

I solved my issue which look like is related to Intel Drivers. This command line solved the issue:

sudo apt purge xserver-xorg-video-intel

Reboot and everything is back being normal.
