One thing I have learned NOT to trust, and for that reason will never use again, was Ubuntu's updates.


I had it happened it Windows too. Updates break things sometimes. 


And easy fix to this in Linux Mint is just enable level 4 and 5 updates in the update manager preferences. You get all the Ubuntu updates then.
