According to this comment ( )at Phoronix, the underlying cause is:

"Ubuntu is using -fcf-protection by default now and that isn't compatible with -mindirect-branch that the kernel uses for retpolines. "

Bug 1830961 appears to be an earllier report, so this is a duplicate of that bug, as is bug 1836373
