I have three different Raspberry PI 4 with 8GB. The oldest of them fails to boot the Ubuntu image. After displaying the text for the GROWROOT on either a 32GB or 64 GB created microSD card, the screen blanks and there is no further HDMI output. I have tried using Rufus, Startup Disk Creator and the snap rpi-imager, all with the same result. I am able to successfully install 20.04 on the machine, perform an upgrade to 20.10, but at that point I can no longer install software like raspi-config or inxi to generate further diagnostic data since I get 404 errors that there are no release candidates. 20.10 will also fail to upgrade to 21.04 for similar (reasons - sorry the system that is failing never gets to the point where I can capture error messages). I brought the failing system up with Ubuntu 20.10 desktop and I could not download inxi, but I have a copy of the /proc/cpuinfo for that system as well as the inxi -F output from the two systems that could boot Ubuntu 21.10.
