I have an Antergos install that’s been running beautifully for well over a year now with daily updating. This morning, I ran ‘sudo pacman -Syu’ to have a number of recent updates installed. I don’t remember all the packages, but they numbered around 15 in total. During the update, i experienced a crash of the system.
Upon rebooting, I’m met with kernel panics each time. I get ‘loading linux kernel’ and ‘loading ramdisk’ then ‘starting version 239’ This is followed by somewhat different messages each boot.
The latest contains:
ERROR: resume: hibernating device 'UUID= blah blah numbers' not found /dev/sda3: recovering journal /dev/sda3: clean 500777/2048000 files, 5238540/8192000 blocks switch_root: failed to execute /sbin/init: Exec format error [ 18.184307] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00007e00 ,,,more stuff...
There are also some RIP messages interspersed as well.
This machine has 3 SDDs (one with Antergos, one with Linux Mint, and one with openSUSE). It’s not truly multiboot as I have to choose the drive I want at start from the BIOS vs. a single boot loader (if that makes sense).
Antergos is my primary, and would really love to get it booting again. I don’t think it’s a bad drive, but maybe so. Please let me know what else I can provide and any help in restoring is GREATLY appreciated.
