grub rescue after kernel upgrade
« on: October 21, 2016, 09:03:05 am »
Hello everyone,

When I logged onto my desktop this morning there was a kernel upgrade.

Upgraded my kernel rebooted and ended up at a grub rescue prompt, luckily I have a grub rescue usb used it and everything is good now.

Did the same upgrade on my laptop but before I rebooted I did sudo update-grub, rebooted with no problems.

So not sure if update manager didn't update grub or it was just a hiccup on my desktop.

To help us help you, ALL new requests for technical support should include basic system information.

If you haven't already done so, please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the following command:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
then copy what was returned in the terminal and post it back here.

This was an automated response but please don't ignore it, providing this information now is highly likely to save time for both you and any prospective respondents and aid in the diagnosis of your problem  .. Thanks in advance :)

Note - Please rest assured there is nothing in the output from that command that could be construed as a 'security risk', the '-z' option makes sure of that by filtering out your MAC address.

I had no problem, so I'm assuming it's a one-off .. unless of course others report difficulties ?

BTW, I've removed the accidental duplicate posting ;)
