I had the same issue.
Using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with Xfce Desktop Environment.
I switched to gnome, run the same app and it asked for sudo access. So in my case it was matter of sudo to write an image to thumb drive.
I encountered a similar problem and found the following message in dmesg

BIOS/UEFI Boot Partitions for Full Install Ubuntu and Flavours
Sudodus provides a BIOS/UEFI GRUB Template Image that can be used for Full installs as well as booting ISO files
See BIOS/UEFI Template Image for Booting ISO Files for some background.
Here is how to use it for Full installs:

You may want to try Unetbootin.
Alternatively, if Unetbootin does not run under Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, try the following steps:
Open Terminal and run the following command:
Connect a USB stick with 4 GB or more capacity, then run again:
From the output of both commands, determine the device ...
This happens when the ISO file was burned to usb using the DD command or any of the "standard" tools.
If it's created like this, there's no way to make it writable.
The way to do it is to burn the ISO using some tool such as unetbootin (linux) or Roofus (Windows).
I can't really explain why but the issue was:
I had an internal wifi card on this machine
the antennas for that card were not plugged in
Never had to care about that because I never used the wifi. Must have unplugged them by accident in the past. For some reason when I plugged them in I was suddenly able to use USB wifi.
If the disk has been unmounted, via Nautilus (using the eject icon), open the Disks application, select the disk to power down in the left pane, then click either of the icons marked below, to spin down the drive and power off, and then it can be safely unplugged from USB...
You can do this with hdparm:
Open Terminal (if it’s not already open)
Spin down the device:
hdparm -y /dev/sdb
Note: Be sure to replace sdb with the actual device you’d like to spin down.
You can use this command whenever you’d like to have the drive power down. If it’s mounted and an application wants to read from it, then the drive will spin up again.
The USB dongle for the headset seems to have some very particular expectations. Based on information from Linux-Hardware.org the dongle is detected, but not working in Ubuntu 20.04. That said, people have reported they can get it to work if:
They unplug and re-connect the dongle after every boot
They install pavucontrol and configure the device through the ...
While upgrading to point release shouldn't be done in anger, I'd recommend trying the latest Ubuntu Point release (perhaps on a live USB) and see if that works. Sometimes having a later kernel will include the necessary bits to make more hardware work.
The latest point release as of this post is 21.04, if that does work, you can weigh the options of ...
You don't need to copy any ISO file to upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu. There are plenty of online tutorials on how you can perform an upgrade: https://ubuntu.com/tutorials/upgrading-ubuntu-desktop#1-before-you-start
If you want to do a clean install of the newest version of Ubuntu, then you'll need an ISO file on a USB drive, but you don't need to copy ...
The instructions in the highlighted answer work flawlessly (original link: How to Create a Full Install of Ubuntu 20.04 to USB Device Step by Step). I successfully created a usb stick for Zorin OS 16 which is based on Ubuntu 20.04.
Prior to following these instructions, I had simply booted into the live session and installed the OS on my usb with bootloader ...
I'm also confronted by this bug and have discovered this issue reported elsewhere:
If I understand correctly, a fix is available here:
Unfortunately, my Linux Voodoo only goes so ...
git clone https://github.com/RinCat/RTL88x2BU-Linux-Driver.git
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 88x2bu
After each kernel update, you must recompile:
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 88x2bu
This is a bug as recorded here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-signed-hwe-5.11/+bug/1939297.
It is still present in kernel 5.11.0-34-generic as I experienced today (on Lenovo T14 Gen1 with ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock Gen 2 and monitor connected via DisplayPort). If I switch to kernel 5.8.0-63 the problem is gone.
I had the same problem, and couldnt do it with ubuntu. An easy fix is to burn the USB with Rufus in Windows. In my case the Linux partition already installed on the pc was in MBR mode, so UEFI (GPT) USB was returning the missing drivers error.
The solution was to burn the USB in MBR mode and the installation worked perfectly. If your system is in UEFI mode ...
Yes it does work. I have one myself and I just plug it in and started my computer.
Tested with a USB SSD drive and the speeds are about equal to the internal USB ports. Also camera (Canon) loads fine as well as any USB drive I tested.
Also have a Presonus audiobox Itwo that sits fine in one of the USB ports.

Note: Windows can read Linux ext2/3/4 partitions with the addition of a Windows driver... but DON'T do it, 'cause it'll surely corrupt the Linux file system.
Here's the safe way to do it...
Connect the old Ubuntu drive via a USB->SATA cable.
Note: Some USB->SATA converters can't read/write to previously formatted drives without a reformat (thereby ...
I tried all of this on Ubuntu 20.04 and none of it worked. When I tried the modprobe solution network manager simply created a new device! So finally I simply unplugged the tiny little wifi card from the motherboard and that worked. If you can't solve it in software try this hardware solution.
After some more searching I noticed something odd, none of the extra kernel modules was actually installed on this system:
$ aptitude search linux-modules-extra*
p linux-modules-extra-5.4.0-70-generic - Linux kernel extra modules for version 5.4.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
There's a mistake on the mountpoint path. Instead of /Desktop/extHD it should be /home/yourusername/Desktop/extHD, or simply ./extHD if you're already inside the Desktop folder. To find out where you are you can run the pwd command.
Provided you already have an iso, you can use Etcher or mintstick to help you make bootable pendrives from iso files. If your ...
I would recommend the following tools to create a persistent live. If you do it
in Windows, you can use Rufus,
in Ubuntu, you can use mkusb.
See also this link.
There are instructions at the web sites that I link to.
The original poster, @DreamingOfSleep, was using Rufus, and was helped by the following screenshot, that shows where to set persistence.
Persistent Install vs Full install
Ubuntu can be installed to a USB in different ways. A Live install does not save between sessions. A Persistent install extracts the OS from a compressed file and saves data to an overlay file or partition each session, and a Full install installs the complete OS to the USB just like an install to internal disk.
Packages that loose their maintainer will be removed from newer Ubuntu.
You can find an updated pam-usb on github. It has a PPA.
Warning: 3rd party software is a potential security issue as you need to trust the maintainer.

An ext4 flash drive is being mounted with root user's permissions, because ext4 supports Linux permissions, and Linux, by design, is a secure operating system. By default, users have full access under their own home folder only. They need to be granted access by the person administering the system to write elsewhere.

Writing a value disabled instead of enabled into the file /sys/bus/usb/devices/3-5/power/wakeup is working correctly: when the value is disabled, a corresponding mouse or keyboard doesn't wake up the computer, but if the value is enabled - they wake up it. This helper script do it for a device with particular vendorId and productId:

I got the same issue trying to boot Ubuntu 21.04 live CD on my Acer Swift 5 laptop, and none of the proposed solutions seemed to work.
Reading ITAdminNC's answer I realized I was also using a relatively large USB drive (32 GB).
Trying with a smaller drive (16 GB) did the trick for me.
I was able to resolve the lagging issue by changing the USB Dongle to a different USB Port and also, in Ubuntu 21.04, I navigated to
Settings -> Power-> Performance Mode (Selected)
and it worked for me.
