Sorry, mistake in "Additional Information" : uname is from kernel version before the update that broke the system. (5.10)
Kernel log is from failing boot however.

so I tried also to delete 'quiet splash' in grub and replace it with 'i915.modeset=0'
this also "fixes" the video issue that I have.

summary:
so far 2 workarounds:
1) plug-in usb-C/DP external monitor
2) kernel parameter i915.modeset=0
