  Black screen of death: system suddenly stopped working soon after
  upgrade to kernel

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I update the kernel images from update-manager this morning on my
  Ubuntu 14.10 system running on my laptop.

  I had started backintime-gnome to take a backup of my home directory
  on an external seagate drive connected to a 4 port USB hub. This is
  something I do almost daily

  I was editing a desktop shortcut on nano when suddenly I saw a black
  screen with a lot of dumps and messages from the kernel (or what
  seemed like the kernel). The screen was frozen - no mouse movement or
  keyboard movement would restore it. I had to force a restart using the
  power button.

  This is the first time I have encountered something like this.
