Centos Stream 9 dead after auto-update

Post by xmaze » 2023/11/05 20:33:01

Hi, after auto update of the kernel to 378 I have the following error, my computer does not boot.
How can I fix it? or how can I disable auto Updates to avoid this again or how can I remove the kernel from my PC and my Grub2 list?
And why this? I cannot imagine that after an Update my computer will be dead.

Pick an older kernel from the grub menu.
The future appears to be RHEL or Debian. I think I'm going Debian.

CentOS 5 and 6 are deadest, do not use them.

The auto-update is not the issue -- you and everyone else should keep their systems up to date.

The issue is that the installation of new kernel did fail for some reason. Figure out why/how it did fail. For example, enough space in /boot? Error messages in the update transaction that you can see with dnf history ?

You can start by removing the bad kernel and then install it again.

We just encountered this same problem on all of our Dell Precision 5860 workstations. Not only did the latest (Oct 30) update cause this issue, but we are also unable to install Centos 9 Stream on any new 5860 workstations using the latest installer (Oct 30).

I was able to successfully install Centos 9 Stream on a 5860 on Oct 27, but not after Oct 30, so this is definitely something related to the latest update.

Were you able to get your system working again?

I have also a brand new Dell G15 but I could install Centos before a month.

How can I remove the bad kernel from my PC and from Grub List?


About Boot size, this is my disk:

If/since the issue reproducible and due to new package(s), then I would suggest reporting it as a bug via issues.redhat.com as no-one from RH monitors this forum.

What packages do you see with:

Code: Select all

dnf rq --installonly --latest=1
Are they all of the same "378" (that is "bad") and not of the kernel you run now?
If so, that list can be used for removal:

Code: Select all

dnf remove $(dnf rq --installonly --latest=1)

You do know that Stream is a permanent beta product? If you want a rebuild of RHEL like CentOS used to be then look at Rocky/Alma/OEL.

CentOS as it was is dead. All that's left is a permanent beta.
The future appears to be RHEL or Debian. I think I'm going Debian.

thank you, I learned it after the installation. So me target was to go from Fedora to CentOs for stability but after the instalation I relized it.
So, I cannot Understand why to have two Beta Distro like Fedora and Centos.
