The linked bug seems to talk about slow performance, you are listing black screen. Are you sure they are related?

Can you confirm that the install/upgrade works ok if you do not let "third party software" be installed during the install?

Also if that works, does letting Jockey install the drivers work or not?

After another install (without enabling updates and 3rd party codecs, i.e., no nvidia driver). ubuntu boots ok.
