Intel 3160 - Wi-Fi not working after update

I am not sure if it was caused by the update or not.
I tried reinstalling all NetworkManager packages which did not fix this.

This is the output I got after disconnecting my wired connection and restarting the service:

Kernel 5.3 is EOL and should not be used any longer at this point. Test alternate kernels such as 4.19, 5.4, or 5.5. If none of those work the test further kernels.

Your ethernet is also at a reduced speed setting. Try setting your ethernet speed to auto-negotiation.
