No Wifi after Software updater - realtek MT7922

Just run software updater and it's lost my wifi.
I saw it downloading latest nVidia drivers and then blank screen - so nothing for it but a hard reset after 10 minutes wait. On reboot no wifi.
MSI MAG B650 Wifi, with Realtek MT7922/AMDZ616

Any suggestions?

In Software & Updates, under "Download from" switch to Main Server.
Connect to Ethernet or phone hotspot.
In terminal, run:

sudo apt remove --purge '^nvidia-.*'

sudo apt update

sudo apt install --reinstall linux-headers-5.15.0-78-generic linux-modules-5.15.0-78-generic linux-modules-extra-5.15.0-78-generic linux-image-5.15.0-78-generic

sudo ubuntu-drivers install

sudo apt upgrade

Reboot and test...

I have seen this before - something about the Nvidia driver install/upgrade interrupts the kernel-modules-extra upgrade on some regional servers.

I've saved your commands. Can anyone point me to how to find the latest appropriate version number in case I have this problem in the future?

I see that Technical details - Zorin OS is not detailed enough...

Latest version of ZorinOS is 16.3.
See this for info and to download the latest .iso: Zorin OS 16.3 Is Released - Zorin

It's a pretty uncommon error. I would be amazed if you got hit by lightning twice.
