    You should be able to use the "Advanced" option of the partitioner, then you can retain any existing home partitions.

    Double check everything before the final OK

    So I should make partition on /home2? As I understand, when I try to upgrade a system from DVD it means that I want to restore default files, i.e. before actualization, and replace them with the current files which can be damaged. There is no advanced option of the partitioner when you use an upgrade option from DVD. I can only indicate the mount point. The default is /home2, when I try to set /home and press continue the installer displays the window again and sets the default mount point as /home3 and so on.

    Using DVD with the system I only got the text terminal. I downloaded journalctl log: https://paste.opensuse.org/775e3b0e.

    OK... Sorry I've not done a DVD upgrade, I was assuming the partition/format options would be the same as a new install.

    You're still using the 42.1 DVD? Or am I mistaken?

    Would this not be a good opportunity to make a fresh install using 42.3. Then you could use the Advanced/Expert partitioner to read the existing partitions and mount points. Format only the root partition and keep your existing /home(s). That way you benefit from a fresh install of 42.3 whilst still retaining your user data in the home partition(s).

    Otherwise I would wait for someone who is familiar with the DVD upgrade process to offer advice.

    The better solution is to restore 42.1 and then upgrade. Why? Because I won't lose any executable programs. I'm a scientist and I use a lot of software. Of course I can install them again but a configure process is time consuming. We don't limit to the upgrade option. I can run another instructions but I don't know which to use.

    OK. I understand your reasons for wanting to restore 42.1 and then upgrade -> 42.2 -> 42.3

    As I wrote, I would wait for someone who is familiar with the DVD upgrade process to offer further advice.

    Yes, this path is definitely better.

    I've found the solution! I read this thread https://askubuntu.com/a/646431 and I reminded myself that when the text console was displaying the computer tried to find two partitions. It "switched between two UUID" and when 01:30 passed it gave up. I checked /etc/fstab (https://askubuntu.com/a/794443) and I noticed that /home2 and /home3 were listed. I plugged in the disks again and everything works correctly. I rebooted the system to be sure that it wasn't random case.

    Summary:

    2. Make fsck manually

    That's all. Thank you guys for your tips!

    EDIT: how to mark the thread as SOLVED?

    All the best,

    Ah!! That was actually evident from https://paste.opensuse.org/775e3b0e but I failed to spot it!

    Code:

    With a similar entry for home3.mount.


    EDIT: how to mark the thread as SOLVED?
    This forum doesn't support that I'm afraid. Suffice to say you've told us the problem is solved.


    Here's hoping your upgrade to 42.3 goes well.
