Dysfunctional Up and Left arrow keys is a symptom of kbd_rules set to
"base" rather than "evdev".

New Xorg sets kbd_rules to "evdev" for all evdev keyboards by default.
See /usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-evdev-kbd.conf

So it looks like you have something that reverts them back to "base" in
your local configuration.
