June 14, 2018 Update

Based on this ArchLinux forum thread it appears you need to add:

amdgpu.dc=0

to your /etc/default/grub LINUX line after quiet splash. Then run sudo update-grub.


Being a new install of Ubuntu 18.04 you are one of the lucky ones that can use journalctl to look at the last boot (which locked up). Use:

journalctl -b-1

Then press the End key to jump to EOF (End Of File). In my successful last boot it says:

In yours you need to look for error messages.

You may have to use the Page Up key to see them.

When you have found what you are looking for (or have given up looking) press Q to exit.

If overheating was causing the shutdown you can install Intel Powerclamp: Stop cpu from overheating

Besides lm-sensors you can get temperature readings for all thermal zones directly from the command line using this one-liner:

$ paste <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/type) <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp) | column -s $'\t' -t | sed 's/\(.\)..$/.\1°C/'

INT3400 Thermal  20.0°C
SEN1             44.0°C
SEN2             52.0°C
SEN3             64.0°C
SEN4             59.0°C
B0D4             73.0°C
pch_skylake      76.5°C
x86_pkg_temp     73.0°C

Reported in Celsius and drop the last three zeros.
