Hi Sam :)

I'll work through this with you - up to an hour and a half.

We can try a bunch of things and always have the nuclear option sugested by Sid (above) if its unfixable.

I've been running linux fo about 20 years now, Ubuntu for the last 10, and currently have 12 devices running one flavour of linux or another (Servers, pcs, laptops, raspberry *** and phones.)

---- thought I'd do a quick look around before hitting enter, and I'm 99.99% confident it wont come down to Sid's nuke option.

Sounds like something was corrupted. I recommend booting up a Linux live USB, copying your files over if you dont have a backup, and then reinstalling. Probably dont need someone to do this for you, if you have a basic understanding.
