I just did a test conversion from 16.04 to 18.04 and did not have this problem. But you can suppress Plymouth by using sudo powers to edit the file /etc/default/grub.

sudo -H gedit /etc/default/grub

Look for the line containing:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

and remove the word splash (which causes Plymouth to load).

Then save your file and run

sudo update-grub

Now Plymouth will no longer run on boot. This is a band-aid fix and you should keep searching for a real fix.
