Today I updated and rebooted my 2020.04 LTS Ubuntu server, and when it came back up, the usb wired Apple keyboard that is normally connected to it won't work. There were over 200 packages updated, so it wouldn't surprise me if one of those updates is the culprit.

I have found that the keyboard does still work in the UEFI screen. I can successfully enter the UEFI screen with the required keypresses upon initial boot-up and navigate the UEFI settings. I have also found that another keyboard works in the server, and that the Apple keyboard works on other computers I have access to. So, the keyboard itself still seems like it is ok. The Apple keyboard does have usb ports that can still power other devices such as mice (and even another keyboard).

I was able to find posts about keyboards suddenly stopping working, but most of those seem to be around "slow press" settings and the like. Since another keyboard works, I don't feel that is the underlying issue (nor do the solutions seem to make a difference). Could this be a driver problem? I wouldn't have thought that an Apple keyboard would take a special driver, but then again, it is Apple hardware. Is there something else I can look at as to why the keyboard isn't working?
