A vulnerability in Apache Log4j, a widely used logging package for Java has been found. The vulnerability, which can allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code by sending crafted log messages, has been identified as CVE-2021-44228 and given the name Log4Shell. It was first reported privately to Apache on November 24 and was patched with version 2.15.0 of Log4j on December 9. It affects Apache Struts, Apache Solr, Apache Druid, Elasticsearch, Apache Dubbo, and VMware vCenter. Since then, it has been disclosed that in certain non-default conditions, the original patch was incomplete; this was designated as CVE-2021-45046 and a new version of Log4j, 2.16.0, has been released.

Run sudo /usr/bin/nvidia-uninstall to uninstall a manually installed driver, if you still got one.

Remove everything of your old NVIDIA driver (simulate first):

<code>sudo apt remove --purge -s nvidia-*
sudo apt remove --purge -s libnvidia-*

If only nvidia packages are there to be removed, remove really:

<code>sudo apt remove --purge nvidia-*
sudo apt remove --purge libnvidia-*

Run sudo apt update and ubuntu-drivers devices again.

If nvidia-390 is still recommended, add your output of sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall again.

The original installation of zpool was from a POPOS 20 install. After Installing a new Ubuntu system over the top of POPOS, the zpool was not listed. Here are the steps to restore the zpool.

Install zfsutils

# apt install zfsutils-linux

When trying to import, I received an error:

# zpool import
