Keyboard dead with newest kernel update

I just updated my 2013 Acer Aspire celeron to the latest kernel update and when I rebooted the laptop keyboard stopped functioning all together. However the track pad still works.
Anyone else having this problem?

I have tried:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove xserver-xorg-input-all && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

Didn't work.


you dont need the 'autoremove'


sudo apt-get --purge xserver-xorg-input-all
(verify it is gone)
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

Thanks for reply. I am getting this when I try your solution:
--purge is not understood in combination with the other options

It also tells me, when I try to install xserver-xorg-input-all:
xserver-xorg-input-all is already the newest version (1:7.7+19ubuntu7.1).
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.

if the pkg is installed, no reason to remove it.

Can you boot the previous kernel?

I did an update after installation of new kernel. I checked the last kernel is there. I will try booting that one.

Same problem here. Is a change of kernel the only option? I cant seem to upgrade to the latest version though. Only to use an older version.

I installed 20.04 but the problem with kernel .47 persisted. I am using .42 now and that seems stable.
