So I reinstalled PureOS on the Librem13v4 again using the OEM usb key, and this time went for a apt full-upgrade directly, and the issue still occurs. I also tried installing PureOS using the live version, and after the installation, the problem occurs at every boot, without the couple minutes hanging time.
