A few days ago I updated Ubuntu 22.10 and when I rebooted the system I had the following issues:

  1. The computer couldn't connect to the internet in any way (with wi-fi, with ethernet or with usb)
  2. The bluetooth adapter wasn't detected either
  3. The refresh rate of the screen was set to 60hz (normally it's in 144hz) and NVIDIA X Server settings is not detecting my GPU anymore

If I go to the advanced settings in GRUB, I can see that the system is booting in Ubuntu, with Linux 5.19.0-1015-oracle. If I boot in the other option available in the menu (Ubuntu, with Linux 5.19.0-29-generic) everything works great again. Is this some kind of issue with the Kernel? In that case, what should I do to fix it?

Edit: if I run dkms status in the working kernel it shows the following xpad/0.4, 5.19.0-29-generic, x86_64: installed
Just to clarify: I never tried to install any additional kernel or anything like that. I have no idea of what is this oracle kerneltree/oracle cloud infrastructure. I only installed some programs in .deb and flatpak packaging format but nothing else.
Could it be that this auto-installed by itself with the update or something like that? And should I do something to uninstall it?

Edit 2:
this is the output of dpkg -l | grep oracle:

ii  linux-image-5.19.0-1015-oracle                  5.19.0-1015.17                            amd64        Signed kernel image oracle

and this is the complete output of sudo apt update:

  • Boot up the working kernel and show dkms status add this to your question please edit and do you really need this oracle kerneltree?

  • Are you running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure? If no, you should boot the normal kernel. Jan 22 at 15:06

    Can confirm - this happened to me too on a Lenovo P1 Gen2 and 22.10. Was suspicious about the kernel, your post helped me temporarily resolve this - choosing 29-generic worked for me. (GJ Google for indexing this so quick.) Seems like the oracle kernels are for Oracle Cloud systems, I do wonder why it was auto-installed on my machine.

1 Answer 1


After using Advanced options for Ubuntu on boot and choosing a non-oracle Kernel, the following command solved it for me permanently (by uninstalling all packages with 'oracle' in their name and its additional data files):

dpkg -l | grep oracle | awk -F ' ' '{print $2}' | while read line ; do sudo apt -y purge $line ; done;

You can also run the following command to confirm what will be removed, prior to running the purge command:

dpkg -l | grep oracle | awk -F ' ' '{print $2}' | while read line ; do echo "sudo apt purge $line" ; done;

P.S. - Pretty odd that some of those leaving comments above write to you as if you chose to install an Oracle Cloud kernel. :facepalm: Ubuntu in 2023..
