I tried asking about this issue earlier, to no avail. I figured I’d lay it all out clearly and hope someone has a solution.
After I install Fedora, there are various updates I need to install. In Gnome Software (or through dnf) I click update and everything seems to work. It says it needs to restart to perform the updates, so I do so. After a few reboots and after the loading screen from installing the updates, the screen goes black and never leaves this state.
Any attempt to open a terminal, reach the GUI, etc., all fail. It is an endless black screen.
After some time (hours, even) sitting at this black screen, I force a shutdown by holding the power button until the machine stops (I know, this is really dumb, but there’s nothing else to do). I can then insert my Fedora USB and install the system again. But, again, when I try to update, it fails horribly.
I verified my .iso so everything’s fine there.
Fedora works great as long as I don’t update anything. But I can’t use Fedora long if I can’t update.
As I said earlier, I tried installing updates through dnf, but that didn’t work either, the updates installed, but after rebooting, I get the same black screen.
Most of these updates are to upgrade Gnome to 3.36.2, with a few misc updates and one OS update (with a ton of info so I’ll leave that out).
Is there, perhaps, a way to download an .iso with everything updated, or is there a way to bypass this update or something?

I’ve installed and used probably 15+ different linux distros, and this is the only problem I’ve had.
I sincerely appreciate any help anyone can provide.
