A couple of weeks ago I ran a ‘routine’ dnf upgrade to kernel 5.19.4-100 in terminal on my Fedora 35 system that went horribly south. Suffice to say it returned a ton of errors (which I did not note), and rebooted into a kernel panic. Fortunately the previous kernel is still selectable in grub, and bootable to an apparently functional system.
The backstory to this is I had previously installed and then removed wine-stable, and snapd in a failed effort to get a more recent version of Adobe Reader. These operations proceeded without any apparent errors.
I have deleted all the bits (kernel-5.19.4-100.fc35.x86_64, kernel-core-5.19.4-100.fc35.x86_64, kernel-debug-devel-5.19.4-100.fc35.x86_64, kernel-devel-5.19.4-100.fc35.x86_64, kernel-modules-5.19.4-100.fc35.x86_64, kernel-modules-extra-5.19.4-100.fc35.x86_64), and rerun dnf upgrade, aborted, to see what’s in the pipeline now – 5.19.6-100.
Is there any reason to suppose applying this upgrade will proceed smoothly, or is there stuff I should verify/fix first before attempting?
