Ubuntu 18.04 stuck in boot Segmentation fault XServer

I have a Lenovo E570 machine (with Nvidia GTX 950M) running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
Everything was working fine until today morning when the Ubuntu bootup got stuck at Started Gnome Display Manager. What’s interesting is that my desktop environment was accessible if I went into recovery mode and then resumed normal bootup.

Steps

After encountering this error, I have tried several things:

  1. As per this answer, I removed Nvidia drivers.
  2. Removed gdm3 (Gnome desktop manager) and installed it again
  3. Installed and tried different Desktop managers including LightDM, SliM (and made them primary desktop managers one by one) but this did not work either (logs attached).
  4. Found from logs of step 3 that this was a problem with X.Org X Server (logs are attached). Removed and installed again the package xserver-xorg
  5. Installed the Nvidia drivers from Ubuntu Software Update Manager

None of the above options have seemed to work for me. What am I missing here?

My Linux kernel is 4.15.0-109-generic

So I was finally able to solve this issue. I solved this by implementing Marek Lipka's answer in this reported bug: Segmentation fault in XServer

After this step, login screen was stuck in a loop which I solved using SiddharthaRT's answer in this reported bug: Ubuntu gets stuck in a login loop (This was a pretty straightforward step)
