2020-01-16 update broke my trackpad

On Thursday I updated my system to update 2020-01-16. But when I rebooted after updating, my touchpad wouldn't work. I looked into it and found that the touchpad settings menu had reverted from the libinput settings to Synaptics settings, even though xf86-input-synaptics wasn't installed, and said settings menu couldn't pick up my touchpad. I thought it might have been me updating to kernel 5.4, so I backtracked to 5.3 and then 4.19 LTS. Still doesn't work. I also tried actually installing xf86-input-synaptics but that didn't work either. I have a feeling that this is a libinput bug. What can I do?
