Share the list so we might offer an opinion.

It could help to see Xorg.0.log in the current functional state.

Is it likely that 71 updates were issued since the date on your Timeshift restore and today's date?

UPDATE; The 70 odd updates weren't the problem. The update manager suggests the nvidia driver instead of the nouveau driver. The nvidia driver doesn't allow me to adjust the resolution but the nouveau driver does.Thanks for the help. I learned a lot from you all.
