Failure at kernel-update...

Post by peter_li » Tue Jun 18, 2019 4:29 pm

By updating my system I got the following message:

Try running

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
manually and give us the output to see if it picks them up this time.

This might be related. I had a perfectly good MX 18.3 persistent USB.
Today there were 10 updates including a kernel, firefox and other stuff that I didn't pay attention to.
After I did the updates the USB boots to the desktop but I now have no mouse, no keyboard, and no terminal so I can't tell what else was destroyed and I can't post any other information about it.

Nothing changed. Maybe it is interesting that I run in sysstemd mode(cause: snapd).

I had this exact same problem today on two different persistent USBs, one of which was updating from the May 26 ISO, the other of which was updating from a June 7 Remaster. Weirdly, the main USB I use every day, which I have not yet remastered (but need to soon!), updated yesterday just fine. A bit scared now, since I am days away from being ready to install MX Linux 18.3 on a new hard-drive in my laptop and hope this is just a Live USB issue. I hope someone is working on this, because I have been giving out Live USBs with MX Linux 18.3 & Persistence like candy to all the Windozers in my life, and I don't want to turn them against Linux. You know they're just looking for excuses to hate anyway! Please don't tell me I have to change my strategy back to pushing Linux Mint. I LOVE this distro!
Anyway, I haven't yet tried to inspect or manipulate anything on the two 'ruined' Live USBs from another working USB, but I also cannot access mouse, keyboard or terminal after latest updates. Completely frozen. And that's if it finishes booting at all without freezing while

I also have the same failure happening still, but have never used systemd with MX Linux, so, for me personally, the problem probably has nothing to do with systemd.

No issue here with an integrated AMD GPU and the radeon driver.
