Ubuntu – Issue after upgrading from 19.04 to 19.10 : logged in as gnome-initial-setup


I upgraded from 19.04 to 19.10 through the GUI. After the restart, I'm automatically logged in as "gnome-initial-setup" and I can't do anything. Even the shutdown button doesn't work.

Could anybody help me with this issue ?

Same issue here. I manged to figure out a way around it though.

  1. In grub go to advanced Ubuntu options. Chose the latest kernel in recovery mode
  2. Select root shell
  3. apt-get remove gnome-initial-setup
  4. reboot
