Ubuntu – No sound in Ubuntu 18.04


When I first installed it there was sound but after doing updates, upgrades, installations and couple of restarts the sound is gone.

I ran this codes –

sudo alsa force-reload

Then I tried,

sudo apt-get remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio
sudo apt-get install alsa-base pulseaudio
sudo alsa force-reload

But still no luck.
