Ubuntu – Ubuntu 18.04 – after upgrade – Display/PKCS#7 signature error

18.04displaydo-release-upgradesignatureupgrade

After upgrading from 17.10 to 18.04, anytime I try and open Ubuntu I am getting the following errors (which are found in my kern.log as well)

Sep 28 15:06:12 aram-UX330UAK kernel: [   15.056052] PKCS#7 signature not signed with a trusted key
----
Sep 28 15:06:12 aram-UX330UAK kernel: [   15.083938] PKCS#7 signature not signed with a trusted key

Sep 28 15:06:12 aram-UX330UAK kernel: [   15.087645] PKCS#7 signature not signed with a trusted key
----
Sep 28 15:06:12 aram-UX330UAK kernel: [   15.093293] PKCS#7 signature not signed with a trusted key

In particular, PKCS#7 that seems to be a common problem and not allowing me to display anything. I don't normally use the standard Ubuntu desktop (I use xmonad) but I don't even have access to the login screen (which I assume uses the standard Ubuntu desktop)

I tried a few of the previous things that I saw:

Ubuntu 18.04 Boot hangs at PKCS#7 signature not signed with a trusted key

After upgrade ubuntu 18.04 changed from GUI to Terminal

But problems that I noticed: I don't have nvidia, so I don't know if this is a graphics problem:

$ lspci -v | grep VGA -A 1
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 620 (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. HD Graphics 620

Also double checked and everything seems to be installed. I tried doing an update/upgrade and nothing new happened. I tried reinstalling ubuntu-desktop to no avail.

I do have Windows dual-booted, but I have secure boot disabled (I double and triple checked the bios) so I don't think that's an issue either.

It does give me access to a terminal afterward though and after I log in I noticed the following error:

Failed to connect to X Server.
Cannot open display 'default display'

So it seems like a display issue, but no idea how to procede. I tried reinstalling xmonad to no avail.

Anyone have any ideas how to fix this or what needs to be done so that I get access to things?
