I recently done the updates on my thinkpad and since the update the mouse/touchpad no longer works. The new kernel in the update is 4.18.9-200.fc28.x86_64. In order to get a working mouse/touchpad I have to choos Kernel 4.17 on booutup.

Any assistance on how I can resolve this please?

There is a new 4.18-10 kernel in upgrades. Have you checked bugzilla for similar probles? If not file a report yourself.

This problem should be fixed with the next kernel update that Fedora releases, see

If you can't wait, go for this os:
