Bug Description

I installed a fresh (daily build, 20.04.2018) Ubuntu 18.04 on an Dell XPS 13.
After the installation was complete, it didn't shut down successfully:

[....] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (7) occurred attempting to read a pcr value
[....] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (7) occurred attempting to read a pcr value
[....] sd 8:0:0:0: [sda] No Caching mode page found
[....] sd 8:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through

=> After waiting a couple of minutes, I killed the system and restarted it manually.
Everything seems to work thus far, the LVM decryption worked, too.

I upgraded the bio manually to 1.7.0 and reinstalled Ubuntu. This Had No effect on the tpm Error described above which occurred again after hitting "restart now" at the end of the Installation, Just fyi

Actually, the First two (identical) lines occurred, the Other two were Not shown.

The same error with Sony Vaio notebook. Kernel 4.15 is affected. I successfully boot with previous kernel.

Same error here with a Dell Precision 3530. I kind of work around the issue with the acpi=off but some others issues appear after that, at least with the workaround you can boot
