Note that what you found in your stack exchange search was from five years ago,
and described a workaround in a Linux kernel versiojn 4.10.   In addition to
manually disabling APST (a quirk for a very specific Samsung SSD which has
since been added to newer kernels), other suggestions in the stack exchange or
linked web pages included " removing SDD, blowing air into M.2 connector and
reinserting it back" and "switching off the 'UEFI Secure Boot' setting in the

All of which is to say that the symptom is caused by an I/O error, and there
are many potential causes for an I/O error --- everything from missing quirks
(to work around broken firmware / hardware design) to bad connections to
misconfigured BIOS settings to just plain broken hardware.

This is why blindly web searching based on symptoms can often lead to
misleading results; an abdominal pain could mean anything from indigestion, to
a pulled muscle, to an infected appendix, to a heart attack.  It's also why I
am not fond of people finding bug reports on the web and assuming that anything
that has the same symptom must have the same root cause.....
