Testing Xubuntu 18.04: Keyboard key for adjusting screen brightness not working anymore

Today I noticed that, with Xubuntu 18.04, the keyboard key to adjust 
screen brightness is not working anymore. The keys to adjust volume (up, 
down, mute) still work.

I'm confident that, in 18.04, the brightness key worked before, as I use 
that key on a daily basis.

The last time I updated the daily was yesterday.

Any advice on how to investigate this issue?

Is there more information I can provide?

Kind regards,


I ran lshw, and copied information about the laptop I'm using:
