    Thumbs down Doesn't boot after f30 upgrade

    I'm pretty disappointed, not gonna lie. I installed fedora only a couple weeks ago. Today my system told me that f30 is available. I followed the installation steps from the software center.

    Now my machine doesn't boot up properly anymore. It drops me into an emergency shell and wants me to look at journalctl. It's pretty long and I have no idea about kernels and what not. I am salty because of the data I have on my machine. Nothing too bad but still this sucks.

    At this point I am about to use my f29 livestick to download manjaro again and then good bye.

    Re: Doesn't boot after f30 upgrade

    Well, the data's still there (most likely), so you can also boot a Live CD and get the data off the hard drive.
    Of course that's a lot easier if you have other hosts on a local network you can push the files to over the network.
    Note it's always SOP to backup data off the hard drive before OS upgrade. I usually just backup my /home/$USER directory and lower to my USB external drive, then do the upgrade. If I'm doing "dnf system-upgrade" I usually don't even need the backup because the existing partitions are just as they were.
