Problems with Login on KDE Neon Developer Edition

Several days ago an update was made, presumably to SDDM, that caused system logins to fail. Specifically this is only for graphical logins on the SDDM screen. I have tried updating via pkcon refresh and pkcon update from the console but this did not resolve the SDDM login issue.

One thing I noticed is that while attempting to solve this issues via edits to /etc/sddm.conf I found that the original breeze theme was uninstalled and could not be reinstalled due to dependency issues.

As a workaround, I did a clean install of developer edition, then from the command line I ran the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-mark hold sddm


This subsequently prevented the software update(s) that rendered login inoperative.
