Upgraded from 42.3 to Leap 15 getting errors, I think about drives?

I have had this for a while now and just do not know how to proceed, it does mean the computer now takes several minutes top boot as it waits to time out.

Here is a small section of lastlog showing some of the messages I see on the screen.

I can post it all now I have found it.

Please let me know, where to look and what I could try, I am wondering if this is a left over from the upgrade?


Most likely during the upgrade the UUID of some partitions was changed but the fstab was not updated accordingly, so the system is still waiting for the “old partitions” to show up.
Please show between CODE tags (the # button above the editing space) the result of the following commands issued as superuser:

su -
<root password here>
cat /etc/fstab


Sorry not sure how long ago you posted I have not got any notification.

Here is the responses

linux-lovw:/home/adrian # cat /etc/fstab
UUID=e0c9812e-0733-44bc-9aae-3fdccac250ac  swap  swap  defaults        0  0
UUID=385ac2c1-31fa-4bf0-9606-a2ca194daabd  swap  swap  defaults        0  0
UUID=53cf96da-f800-439b-a75d-d73a3f679f9b  swap  swap  defaults        0  0
UUID=0cf74f6a-3542-4efc-aeb0-62babbfc1695  /     ext4  acl,user_xattr  1  1

and the next

linux-lovw:/home/adrian # lsblk -o UUID,NAME,SIZE,RO,TYPE,FSTYPE,MOUNTPOINT
UUID                                 NAME    SIZE RO TYPE FSTYPE MOUNTPOINT
                                     sda    74.5G  0 disk        
53cf96da-f800-439b-a75d-d73a3f679f9b ├─sda1    2G  0 part swap   [SWAP]
0cf74f6a-3542-4efc-aeb0-62babbfc1695 └─sda2 72.5G  0 part ext4   /

It looks as though for some reason there are two extra swap areas?

Is it safe just to edit the first two lines out of fstab?


Your fstab has two extra entries for swap partitions you don’t have. The first two should be removed so that it only has UUID matches for the lsblk output.

OK thank you both I will edit out the extra lines and reboot.


Just a quick update to say all is well again.

Thank you.
