I'm glad I'm not the only one who's finding Ubuntu bionic to be,
um...not quite what you expect from LTS releases.  I tried to migrate a
CUDA GPU machine to it for my employer, and found that due to
miscellaneous problems with Wayland, Gnome 3, systemd/DNS, etc., it was
necessary to revert to backups of the previous install.  Just an
amazingly broken mess.
