Hi Shanon,

Looks like a firmware file is missing - either the kernel was updated, 
and requires a new firmware file, or the firmware package was somehow 

That file is in the package that I currently have installed:

  $ dpkg -L linux-firmware | grep iwlwifi-4965-2

So, to fix, try a:

  sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-firmware
