Login problem after upgrading to Ubuntu 21.10 - suspect keyboard

cn flag

I have just upgraded to Ubuntu 21.10 (Impish) When I tried to log in via gnome, my usual username/password wasn't recognised. I then did Ctr Alt F1 (or F3? - I can't remember) and was able to access a terminal login screen. It seemed that some characters typed at the keyboards were not being echoed correctly to the screen - for instance 'g' would appear as something like 'g[[' . However, I was able to login at this screen. Suspecting a keyboards broblem, I then did:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

However the command said that server is already at the newest version. I am now wondering what to do - thanks for any advice. Ian.

Update: This sorted the problem out:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

Thanks for all who have looked at this!

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
