After rebooting, the manager does not start anymore. Is there some logs somewhere?
I am on Ubuntu 18.04.5 with Boinc from the repository:

boinc/bionic-updates,bionic-updates,now 7.9.3+dfsg-5ubuntu2 all [installed]
metapackage for the BOINC client and the manager
boinc-manager/bionic-updates,now 7.9.3+dfsg-5ubuntu2 amd64 [installed]
GUI to control and monitor the BOINC core client

Have you tried going to the /var/lib/boinc-client directory and running in a terminal
boincmgr


Does it start the manager and if not what is the output?

Current version of BOINC is 7.16.x A bit surprised 18.04 doesn't come with a more up to date one.

Is this the lock file problem?
