I’m running Fedora 29 on a Dell Optiflex. Kernel is 4.19.2-301.fc29.x86_64
Haven’t ran my PC for 6 months I performed a
dnf update and
dnfupgrade. I recall there were something like 2500 items to upgrade but less than half way through the PC freezes. I tried a few keystroke commands but then gave up and pulled the plug.
When I log back it I can de-encrypt my drive but then the screen shows the circular fedora symbol. Normally I press a key and it will allow me to enter my login password but it wasn’t happening.
I can see the boot screen (Windows key + space) and there are a number of failures. I tried to go to the terminal/shell by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2 (Ctrl-Alt-F1 exits the terminal) but I only see a flashing horizontal bar and no key works. Back to the shell I took a picture of the repeating failures.
I also tried to install (at the grub menu) into the rescue option but the result is the same.
