Boot fails or gives errors after manually installing updates.
This document (7023233) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Once a server is registered, if there is an update for any package, this will result in a seamless integration when other packages are also required to be updated at the same time
It is generally recommended to perform :
and update all and every installed package on the system to prevent any incoherence in the system. This is especially true for everything connected to boot and root file-system and base system like for example
Issue such as described above wase a result an update was done on only specific packages, like for example :
zypper up kernel-default
zypper up glibc
zypper up systemd
but no updates were applied on dependent packages, such as being there for example dracut & udev in this example, or for any other packages for which updates might also be available.
dracut-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts
The system ccould be brought into working condition again by a skilled Linux System Administrator, but this was an avoidable prolonged downtime situation and caused unnecessary interrupts to the services.
