Error message in startup-boot screen of Fedora 30 on new installation

Recently I installed fedora 30 beta in my Acer Aspire 3 Intel i3 7th gen laptop.

I get the following error while switching on my laptop. This error message shows up for 1-2 second and then the boot screen appears and log in normally. May I know how to remove this error or is this serious issue. :confused:

This occurs in 30 release, I had it too, lucky this is nothing to worry about, and is a know BUG’s and it fixed now, but you have option:

  1. Keep your system up-to date with sudo dnf update
  2. You can update your kernel from getting the lastest update-testing repo sudo dnf update --enablerepo=updates-testing kernel kernel-{core,devel,modules\*,headers} --> you can adap it as your needs

Thank you @hhlp for your reply.
I tried sudo dnf update, but still get the same bug while switching on my laptop.
Tried the second command too. I get the following message in the terminal

Package kernel-devel available, but not installed.
No match for argument: kernel-devel

Should I need to install kernal-devel. How to do it? Will this solve the bug?

if you don’t have installed kernel-devel delete it from the list… if occurs with any other do the same…

You can add --setopt=strict=0 to the command. That tells DNF to ignore packages in the list that it cannot find. So:

sudo dnf update --enablerepo=updates-testing kernel kernel-{core,devel,modules\*,headers} --setopt=strict=0

This is definitely grub…

Since the Bugzilla reports said that this only happened on a clean install, I’d blame anaconda. Perhaps grub is right, and anaconda formatted the ESP as either the wrong FAT or corrupted FAT

Exactly, I am too thinking the same. its grub issue.

But I might be wrong about anaconda. It could be the new blscfg.

I was looking through my grub.cfg on fedora 30 and found “insmod fat.” I’ll have to double check in what context it said that, but presumably, grub, booted from a fat partition (ESP), does not need to open the fat partition. That was already done.

(Just to be clear, I’m not having this issue. (I upgraded, so that could be it?) I’m not blaming that line, I’m only saying that the new blscfg change likely has something to do with it, and that I take back my attribution of blame on anaconda (even though, ultimately, it still comes back to grub regardless).)

I think here is one more grub issue to take note of Fedora 30 Dual Boot Windows 10

Apologies, I noticed this too now.
