After Ubuntu 18.04 upgrade - DNSmasq not resolving

I have updated my Ubunutu from 16.04LTS to 18.04LTS
I had to change from vino to xRDP to get remote desktop back.
Pi-Hole went back to not resolving which was really annoying again.

If DNSmasq is not resolving after starting:
Check that /etc/systemd/resolved.conf contains
DNSStubHandler=no

Re: Pi 3 cannot boot images that for with Pi 2?

Use rpi-update.
