My current VPS had Rocky Linux 8.7 and I started the upgrade process so that I could run on the latest version, but it failed halfway through because the CPU type in Proxmox was not “host” but instead was the default one. I changed the CPU type, so I could run without getting a Kernel Panic, but it still can’t boot. I got the following errors:
Failed to start Load Kernel Modules Failed to start Load/Save Random Seed. Failed to start Apply Kernel Variables. Failed to start Monitoring of LVM2 … sing dmeventd or progress polling. Failed to start Rule-based Manager for Device Events and Files. (Got this error several times in a short interval)
I also got “Welcome to Rocky Linux 9.1 (Blue Onyx)” and “Welcome to Rocky Linux 8.7 (Green Obsidian) so it seems it has done the update halfway
Finally, I got “Give root password for maintenance” and it gives me “Login Incorrect” even though the correct password is entered. On the grub loading screen, I have the choice to load with two different Rocky Linux 8.5 Kernels, the 8.7 one and the 8.5 rescue one but I still get the same errors. I also can’t open any shells
I have also tried loading from the Live CD and going into the “Rescue a Rocky Linux system”. I chose option 1 (Continue) and it says, “You don’t have any Linux partitions.”. I also can’t mount the partitions, when I execute “lvscan” it shows all of them as inactive. But when I run “vgchange -ay” and re-run the command it shows them as active.
Is there any way to fix the Rocky Linux installation?
Thanks in advance,
