Blender stopped working

Please help!
I tried installing and uninstalling both from octopi and discover with no avail. I also tried restarting.
I downloaded it from the website and executing the launcher works just fine after unpaking.
I’m using a lenovo legion with nvidia graphics. A week ago blender was running just fine…

Needless to say im very new to linux systems but i believe i can manage to fix this with help.

Here is the crash report on tmp:
