I can see the vumeter moving in zorin sound settings when I perform a sound test but I can't heard nothing. If I plug a headset in jack I can hear the sound test.
I installed the pulse audio following other post solutions here, if some one can help me.
I don't remember in which zorin version did it stop working.

My other info to avoid "analog" error in forum:
Changed your original post to OCD error. Please refrain from attempts to bypass the word filter, it is present for a reason. This is a family friendly forum and we aim to keep it that way.
FAQ and Intoduction to General Help may assist you in future posts.
In your Sound Settings, is Output/output device in dropdown list for sound test set to speakers or headset?
Try with speakers selected with headset disconnected.
alsamixer, Look for [automute] channel and try that set to Disabled.
alsamixer, Look for [Loop-back] channel and try that set to Disabled or Enabled to see any effect.
alsamixer unmute (type M) at all your output channels and increase volume level to see effect.
F6 to see if any other sound cards listed.

I don't quite understand what you are saying, I wasn't trying to bypass anything, the error the forum gave me when I tried to attach what I had to put in Pastebin said that word. Maybe you should change the word in the error message if you want it to be family friendly.

Hi, thanks for replying, I have gone to do the first check you indicated and the sound works.
I do not understand what has changed. I updated the software yesterday with the pending updates, but I don't think that fixed it. I also did as indicated here https://vivaubuntu.com/instalar-odoo-en-ubuntu-18-04-paso-a-paso/ to be able to install Odoo. is it possible that something related to python or the apt-get --fix-broken install command fixed it?
Both volume indicators have always worked for me (mic and speakers) but this is when I can hear it.
The drop-down only shows speakers - internal audio, have always shown this device unless I plug the headset into the jack.
I changed the automute option as you told me.
I didn't want to change the others as I don't know very well what they do and the sound is currently playing.
Many thanks to both of you for your answers. I am left wondering how to fix it if it happens again.
This was confusing... I looked into it by checking the file in the pastebin.
It was the word
analog that tripped the filter:
tarjeta 0: Intel [HDA Intel], dispositivo 0: AD1984A Analog [AD1984A Analog]
Subdispositivo #0: subdevice #0
arjeta 0: Intel [HDA Intel], dispositivo 2: AD1984A Alt Analog [AD1984A Alt Analog]
We will see if we can fix this forum side...
It is a linguistic issue. The ó is not recognized resulting in the word read stopping at the "l" just before it.
You had to type it to receive that error. That is the word filter responding to what you typed.

haha, I understand now, thanks for the clarification
@Aravisian @337harvey , I did not understand the problem before.
Thank you both.
From your latest
alsamixer screenshots, I see both your [Headphone] and [Speaker] channels are unmuted and volume level set midway. Pleased to hear your sound is now working.
You should save your working
alsamixer settings using:
sudo alsactl store
Note: I find fixing sound problems on Linux is sometimes more luck than judgement. Sometimes if you play around with
alsamixer, it comes good for no logical reason.
