no, if you read the complete mail, you should notice that it does say
three things.

1. Before I bought my new mobo, I ensured that it doesn't force me to
use U/EFI/secure boot, to avoid all the known issues. Perhaps the OP's
laptop allows this, too, so getting rid of an operating system enforcing
its usage, repairing the laptop and then reinstalling Ubuntu or any
other Linux distro without U/EFI/secure boot might be a solution.

2. Complete the Ubuntu bug report. Google might help you. Since the bug
report is flagged as being incomplete, the OP much likely already got
an email with hints, what is missing to complete it.

3. Google also might help to report the bug to those responsible for
it. Maybe Ubuntu isn't the culprit.
