I ran apt upgrade and it wanted to remove an older kernel. I ran apt autoremove and it got stuck at update-initramfs: https://hastebin.com/jegeyitoxi.cpp3 Here's the referenced log: https://hastebin.com/idayolugub.pas
I've tried running apt over and over. I've tried removing the rtl driver using the driver manager in kubuntu but it, itself, gets stuck as initramfs-utils hangs and i have to kill it. I don't know how to proceed. I know better than to reboot until resolved.
