Seems a serious issue with silverblue update boot stuck - a start job is running for /dev/disk/by-uuid/8d21faa4-0cac-45b9-9d86-2b54e2fe1f02

seems a serious issue with latest silverblue updates boot stuck - a start job is running for /dev/disk/by-uuid

I believe its related to the newest kernel, i am running silverblue 35, fine on kernel 5.16.20-200.fc35.x86_64, but a recent update including the following repos Enabled rpm-md repositories: fedora-35-updates fedora-35 vivaldi rpmfusion-free rpmfusion-nonfree rpmfusion-nonfree-updates rpmfusion-free-updates slack wants

kernel-5.17.4-200.fc35.x86_64 (fedora-35-updates)
kernel-core-5.17.4-200.fc35.x86_64 (fedora-35-updates)
kernel-devel-5.17.4-200.fc35.x86_64 (fedora-35-updates)
kernel-headers-5.17.4-200.fc35.x86_64 (fedora-35-updates)
kernel-modules-5.17.4-200.fc35.x86_64 (fedora-35-updates)
kernel-modules-extra-5.17.4-200.fc35.x86_64 (fedora-35-updates)
kernel-srpm-macros-1.0-6.fc35.noarch (fedora-35)

and a syctl reboot after update fails for continue past a start job is running for /dev/disk/by-uuid/8d21faa4-0cac-45b9-9d86-2b54e2fe1f02

so how to debug.

It looks like it’s having trouble mounting a disk. If you have more than one disk, it’s possible that one of them might not be healthy.

kernel 5.16 boots fine on it, btrfs enabled triple 2TB NVME drives, and their new. doubtful its a faulty drive.

bump… nobody has any other ideas?

Hi, I am sorry that I can not provide any insightful information besides saying that this is also affecting me.

I can boot no problem in Silverblue 35, but Silverblue 36 gives me this problem more often than not. To the point that I have not been able to finish booting in order to obtain a previous boot log, so I can only attach a poor picture:

rpm-ostree deployment information:

  fedora:fedora/36/x86_64/silverblue

okay welp, that says at least im not the only one. are you using multiple drives i have 3x2TB ssd configured, and yes same F35 boots fine. F36, and Silverblue 36 same result.

Yes, indeed: I have an HDD (1TB), an SSD (250GB) and a NVME (500GB).

My btrfs volume spans partitions on both the NVME and the SSD. There are other partitions but are not mounted on boot.
