Ubuntu – systemd-journald crashed with SIGABRT in pthread_sigmask()

18.04lenovosystemdsystemd-journald

Fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 on a new Lenovo x1c6, I'm getting this error sometimes after resuming from suspend.

I have no idea what it means, and search online leads to a bug report that doesn't exist

Might be related: my battery life is 4-5 hours, and this Lenovo is reported by other Ubuntu users to have 10+ hours. See related thread

The answer in that thread suggests running the following:

His problem was caused by fixed his high CPU problem by doing this:

I fixed it by adding a pci=nomsi parameter to the
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT property(you can find and edit it in: sudo vim /etc/default/grub)

After adding the parameter update the grub: sudo update-grub and then
reboot. Then run top in the terminal, and see whether that fixed it.

I don't want to mess with grub without further advice. Too many bricked computers running around these days 🙂

Thanks in advance for any help!

i have a weak memory that in the systemd area there have been problems for some installations that might have expressed in a similar sort of log. the solution for that was just updating systemd to a more current version that had a fix included that solved it.
