So last night I was using my Raspberry Pi just fine but my internet didn't work so i fixed it with sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade.

This morning I plugged it in and neither the mouse nor keyboard work, they are getting power, as they have lights on them but aren't working. I went to recovery mode and they work just fine but not in the desktop.

Also my Raspberry Pi sometimes after booting just shows a black screen, which also started this morning.

  • Sounds like a power issue, try switching PSU and Micro USB cable. Check the log with the command dmesg after any error messages, tecmint.com/dmesg-commands. – MatsK Feb 10 '19 at 9:51
  • I did, same thing, it's not a power issue as they work in recovery mode – SteroidCookies Feb 10 '19 at 10:05
  • What operating system you are using? What is recovery mode? – Ingo Feb 10 '19 at 13:36
  • maybe try pushing the cord (or connector, in my case.) more into the pi. and for the black screen, just wiggle the mouse – Annelies Jan 2 '20 at 17:32
