System does not boot after (failed) update
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Last week I updatet my Solus installation. The download of the updated packages got interupted multiple times. After running the update from the console I finaly manage to update the system. A view days later I tried to start up my system (it wasn't used in the time since the update) and it won't start any more.

It does bot into a dracut recovery console and tells me to rebuild my initramfs. I never heard or even done this bevore. Can some one Please assist me in getting my Solus installation back to life?

There is one SSD disk in my Notebook on that solus is installed in an encrypted partition, so I can't access it from the dracut recovery console.
