The Subdivion Surface Modifier in Blender 2.80 on Ubuntu is not working for me. I create a cylinder, grid, cube or UV sphere, then apply the modifier, nothing happens. When I press "apply" the rror message is: "Modifier returned error, skipping apply".

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

  • $\begingroup$ silly question, but did you actually click subdivide so that the object is subdivided once? You'll have 3 options that should increase in value view 1 Sculpt 2 render 2 quality 3 if you see that, then you can hit apply. $\endgroup$ Nov 18, 2019 at 21:08
  • $\begingroup$ I think it is a bug in the Linux (Ubuntu) version of Blender 2.80. I looked at the same scene in Blender (basically, a subdivided cube), and on Windows it looks curved as expected whereas on Linux there is no subdivision. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The Ubuntu package is silently broken. You have to download from blender.org. $\endgroup$

Updating to version 2.81 Fixed this for me.

  • $\begingroup$ There is no 2.81 Ubuntu package. Like in my comment above, you have to directly download from blender.org. $\endgroup$
