Update Error

#1 Postby NevilsStation » Sat May 13, 2017 9:37 am

Just ran today's (13May2017) update and at the end this error occurred:

Code: Select all

update - intramfs Generating /boot/intrd.img-4.7.0-0.bpo.1-amd64
cryptsetup: WARNING: failed to detect canonical device of /dev/sda2


Any reason for concern, please?

Thanks!

see this:

I believe it is a longstanding but harmless warning if you are not using encryption.

I used to see it all the time (ie, from at least 1 plus years ago) when I was running Semplice Linux (Debian Unstable distro).
