Black screen after upgrading

Upgraded from 4.16 to 4.18 and now I get a black screen. First time user so I'm not sure how to proceed. When I select the original 4.16 at boot it runs fine. Using an AMD RX580 card if that matters. alt+ctrl+f2 doesn't do anything at the black screen.

I just booted into nomodeset and checked the driver's with lspci and they're both using the exact same driver's for both the nonworking and working versions of fedora on my PC.

Everything was working perfectly on my first install. It wasn't until I updated [dnf update] and had to restart that it boots into a black screen. I didn't install any AMD drivers.

Could you tell what you upgraded? You only mention version numbers.
