Thread: System won't start after updates

  1. #1

    Default System won't start after updates

    Hello,

    after installing updates today (sudo zypper up, I think lots of libs, grub etc., zypper told me to restart afterwards), my linux notebook can't boot. I searched in the forums, but did not find anything that seems to fit.

    Symptoms:
    Booting takes long (spinning thingy), then breaks to ermergency console ("enter root pw or ctrl-d to continue").

    journalctl says
    ...
    kernel: i915 0000:00:02.0: fb0: i915drmfb frame buffer device
    systemd[1]: dev-disk-by\x2duuid-...\x2ff...\x2da...\x2dd...device: Job dev-disk-by\\x2duuid-...\x2ff...\x2da...\x2dd...device/start timed out
    systemd[1]: Timed out wating for device dev-disk-by\x2duuid-...\x2ff...\x2da...\x2dd...device
    systemd[1]: Dependency failed for Resume from hibernation using device /dev/disk/by-uuid/<uuid>
    systemd[1]: systemd-hibernate-resume@dev-disk-by...\x2dd...device failed with result 'dependency'
    systemd[1]: ev-disk-by\x2duuid-...\x2ff...\x2da...\x2dd...device: Job dev-disk-by\\x2duuid-...\x2ff...\x2da...\x2dd...device/start failed with result 'timeout'
    dracut-initqueue[303]: Warning: dracut-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts
    <last msg repeats often>
    dracut-initqueue[303]: Warning: Could not boot.

    Resume from hibernation sounds weird, I did a reboot after installing updates.

    Does anybody have an idea about what's wrong with my box? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Default AW: System won't start after updates

    Maybe your resume= is wrong in your grub-cmdline?

    Post:
    Code:
    cat /proc/cmdline
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab

    Hi, thank you very much for the quick reply!

    Code:
    sh-4.4# cat /proc/cmdline
    BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.3.10-lp152.36-default root=UUID=<stuff> splash=silent resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/<stuffY mitigations=auto quiet
    
    sh-4.4# cat /etc/fstab
    cat: /etc/fstab: No such file or directory
    There's only a fstab.empty file in /etc.

    btrfs as filesystem?
    can you boot into a snapshot?

    btrfs as filesystem?
    I think. I did not mess with installer default settings. Whole disk for opensuse. I think xfs is used somewhere as well? Not sure.

    can you boot into a snapshot?
    Unfortunately not. Same result. I tried restore mode as well, no result.

    1. At the Emergency console, enter the root password.
    2. At the CLI prompt, execute some Btrfs housekeeping:

    Code:
     # btrfs balance start -musage=50 /
     # btrfs balance start -dusage=50 /
     # btrfs scrub start -B /
    Once the housekeeping has completed, reboot:
    Code:
     # systemctl reboot
    Once the system has rebooted, please check that the following systemd services have been enabled:
    • btrfs-balance.timer
    • btrfs-scrub.timer

    The associated systemd services, “btrfs-balance.service” and “btrfs-scrub.service” should have the status “static”.
    • If the system disk is an SSD then, also check that the “btrfs-trim.timer” service is enabled.

    Once all that has been done, drop down to the systemd Rescue mode:
    Code:
     # systemctl rescue
    At the CLI prompt execute:
    Code:
     # systemctl start btrfs-balance.service
    Wait for the Btrfs Balance to complete.

    If the system disk is an SSD then:
    Code:
     # systemctl start btrfs-trim.service
    Wait for the SSD Trim to complete.
    Reboot.

    Hi, wow, thank you.

    Unfortunately,

    Code:
    # btrfs balance start -musage=50 /
    # ERROR: not a btrfs filesystem: /
    I wondered what the 15.2 Installer would say to current disk layout and booted from an installation medium (USB stick). I chose 'Install', and step "System probing" gave me an error message/window, saying
    Code:
    YAST2:
    Command '/usr/bin/udevadm info '/dev/sda1'' failed:
    stderr:
    Unknow device, --name=, --path=, or absolute path in/dev/ or /sys expected.
    
    exit code:
    4
    I checked if the ssd is still inserted correctly, looks good. HDD LED blinks a couple of times when trying to boot, but not very often.

    Did sudo zypper up kill my ssd??

    Code:
    # /usr/bin/udevadm --query=property /dev/sda
    <lots of stuff>
    ID_MODEL = INTENSO_SSD_SATA_MODEL_III
    <even more stuff>
    #
    --> Intenso SSD recognized.

    Code:
    # /usr/bin/udevadm --query=property /dev/sda1
    Unknow device, --name=, --path=, or absolute path in/dev/ or /sys expected.

    Did you check the results of “Repair Installed System”?

    Default Re: System won't start after updates

    No, because I can't find this.
    Options when boot ing my Leap 15.2 USB stick:
    Code:
    Boot from Hard Disk
    Installation
    Upgrade
    More ->
    Rescue System
    Boot Linux System
    Check Installation Media
    Memory TEst
    There's a "Rescue System" entry that asks for a rescue login. Accepts only root as user, no pw, says "have a lot of fun.." and drops me on a shell prompt.

    Another thread here on the forum says there is no longer a rescue option, but selecting Upgrade will give the same result (with the need to install all updates again).
