    Default update from 42.1 to 42.3 ends in not booting system

    I did an DVD update from 42.1. to 42.3. Everything worked good but at the end the system is not booting.

    The Message is:

    "error: no such device: /efi/boot/fallback.efi"

    Hardware is a notebook with one disk - nothing special.

    I can boot the system with the DVD menue "Boot Linux System"

    When booting von sda, the one and only disk
    sda3:/boot/vmlinuz-4.4.114-42-default

    everything is fine - good working suse.

    What is the way to fix the boot-problem?

    ... well, you could try the Yast=>Boot Loader module, make a change in there of any sort, and see if it the reinstall of Grub2 fixes the problem.

    I did many changes in Yast--> Boot Loader.
    But the system ends farther with the message "EFI Directory not found"
    Is there a little bit more specific action I can do?
    Please help

    The point is not to change the defaults just change something then back to trick the software into thinking a change has been made force it to reinstall. Randomly changing things will break something

    When you boot the installed OS via the DVD, what is reported by the following?
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    Code:
    parted -l
    openSUSE Leap 15.3; KDE Plasma 5

    Also, give the output from:
    Code:
    blkid
    and your current boot command line from in Yast=>Bootloader, the Resume= line is what I want to also see.
