It seems I face the consequences of this bug and my stupidity to not notice this conflict may break something…
I didn’t install the upgrade through GNOME Software because it sometimes just doesn’t work and instead followed this fedoramagazineDOTorg/upgrading-fedora-29-to-fedora-30/ (sorry I can’t insert more than 2 links as a new user) to install via console. Because I had a conflict when trying to start the upgrade I passed ‐‐allowerasing and proceeded.
The problem seems to be that I had @mate-desktop-environment installed, see the bug linked to the wiki entry.
Now Fedora doesn’t boot and instead gets into rescue mode / dracut and generates “/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt”
which includes the following line:
“[ 5.424035] T480s systemctl: Failed to switch root: Specified switch root path ‘/sysroot’ does not seem to be an OS tree. os-release file is missing.”
Is there anything I can do to fix the system quickly? Or is it the best to just reinstall (if possible without deleting /home)?
Thanks in advance!
I did a clean install in the meantime…
