USB/HUB/Dock error on Zorin OS 17.1

I'm having an issue with USB HUB connected to my laptop, started showing the following error messages regarding the disconnect & connect of USB-HUB (dock). This started happening after an upgrade. The same issue is happening to my friend as well. We are using the same laptop and the docking/hub device.

Here is the error I see:

Can you please help me to fix this issue?


If this started after a software update then maybe a new linux kernel is to blame.
Try booting an older kernel generic from grub menu item, "Additional Options for Zorin". Just select the next oldest kernel generic listed there and see if that helps.

I'll try it and post the result.

The logs you see are for the device automatically getting disconnected and connected back.

You may find this of use:

Though I don't see it says it supports PNP, this USB hub was working previously without any issues. The model we use is:

UGREEN (8K 30Hz)
Model CM681

I believe this one is PNP friendly.

Did you ever try this: USB/HUB/Dock error on Zorin OS 17.1 - #2 by zabadabadoo

Yes, Unfortunately it didn't help.

The latest patch fixed this issue and we don't see any errors now.
