Easiest way to remove the firmware fro the equation is to download an older Cura (or the one you used before) and do a firmware update from that Cura.

Also even if your gut tells is one thing it might be other. Please post pictures of the failed print, it helps a lot to find the issue.

Just thinking out loud. But feeder doing noise on um2 use to be a clear indication of PTFE coupler dead. Read more about that on https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/19619-ulti-evening-maintenance

UM2 PTFE couplers have a life of print hours from 50 to 200. UM2+ TFM couplers have a much longer print hours from 200 to 2000 (depends on the temperatures used). So it could be a good idea to think about upgrading the hotend. How to upgrade it depends on how much fiddling are you up to do. With some modding skills can be done quite fast (TFM + printed spacer) but if you are more the plug/use kind there's a full UM2+ upgrade that can improve your machine in many ways.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
