Centos 8 wont boot after yum update

Post by sbdcunha » 2021/02/11 19:00:33

Dear All,

I have upgraded my Centos 7 servers with a new Centos 8.2 Install and after the reboot Centos 8 refuses to boot.
I am presented with the below 3 options at boot

1 vmlinuz-4.18.0-240.1.1.el8_3.x86_64
2 vmlinuz-4.18.0-193.28.1.el8_2.x86_64

the default being no 1

if I select no 2 the older kernel it works fines and no issues

i used grubby to make my default kernel no 2 at all is well

Appreciate if some can help and advise..


Regards
simon

Boot the working one and run yum reinstall kernel-4.18.0-240.1.1.el8_3.x86_64 and see if that helps.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
