Linux filesystems are case sensitive and the X is upper case in /etc/X11

Did you have the correct X when you tried whatever operation gave you that error, or was the x in your post accurate for what you tried?

i copied it as it appeared in the error message
the error came after i did an update

everything worked fine until i restarted the machine the next morning, to be honest, it gave me a message and i clicked ok before i read the message properly. the message was something asking me to either configure X manually or ...... the remaining i could not remember. i selected manually and problems ever more
the screen resolution cannot be adjusted and the sound is not working
