On my Lenovo M30-70, Wifi, USB (including mouse), and audio stopped working suddenly. I accepted an incremental update earlier today. (I'm on Utopic.)

I learned that this does not occur if I choose to boot to the last-but-one kernel 3.16.0-29.

However, I don't want to be always booting into what appears to be an older kernel. With the new default kernel, 3.16.0-30, I get these problems. Still, the Ethernet and the trackpad do work.

Software Updater tells me that I am fully up to date.

What should I do now to revert everything to a stable state or else upgrade to a stable state?

Diagnostics in the buggy state:

ifconfig shows the ethernet and loopback adaptors only, and not the wireless.

Something got scrambled during transmission, update, or there is an error in the update! Well is it not wonderfull that our Ubuntu let us get back to a working konfiguration! Boot into the previous kernel and do the upgrade update from there, that will owervrite whatever error, and you will be up to date again - hopefull without any errors! If the error is persistent try waiting a week for the error to be fixed. Hope this helps it's saved me a couple of times. Best of luck!

  • Software Updater tells me that the software on my computer is fully up to date. – Joshua Fox Feb 6 '15 at 15:00
  • Sorry, Joshua. That is the problem of 14.10: you're the guinea pig for us 14.04 LTS. Look here for more info... – Fabby Feb 10 '15 at 11:46
