Ubuntu 20.04 installation gets stuck

st flag

I have been trying to install Ubuntu 20.04 on my laptop, but during the installation setup before even configuring the drivers, it either keeps loading forever or freezes completely. I have a legacy system. I have a Intel CPU with Nvidia graphics card and I tried installing with safe graphics, but nothing seems to work. When I boot in the system I get this message, but the installation window still opens.

Any firmware updates? Try to install all such if available.

The laptop is quite old so most likely there are, but I know it's pretty dangerous to update and I was afraid

It might be the only way forward though.

Did you verify the ISO before making the Boot USB? Your screen shot does show a firmware bug. Where did you get it is dangerous to update your computer? References please. Edit the question and give the full hardware specs of the computer please.
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

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.
