Bug Description

General description: boot failure (kernel panic) following Ubuntu Update Manager with a new kernel. The current error involves a message with the text "please append a correct 'root=' boot option" and lists sda1/2/3/5/6 as possibilities (/dev/sda[12356] are valid partitions, although the correct answer to the $64,000 question is "/dev/sda5").

Booting via the grub(1) menu from the previous kernel (kernel 2.6.32-41-generic) works, and allows me to continue using my system:

  frank@bagheera:/boot$ (uname -a) && cat /etc/lsb-release
  Linux bagheera 2.6.32-41-generic #94-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 6 16:51:39 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux
  DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
  DISTRIB_RELEASE=10.04
  DISTRIB_CODENAME=lucid
  DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS"

With kernels from 2.6.32-35-generic (#78) through 2.6.32-41-generic(#94), a similar problem occurred. This one involved the failure to create a a missing initramfs: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-41-generic, e.g. would not exist, though the link /initrd.img still pointed to it. Curiously, the error reported by Update Packages in these cases was "file exists":

---------- snipped ----------
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
Errors were encountered while processing:
 linux-image-2.6.32-41-generic
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
A package failed to install. Trying to recover:
Setting up linux-image-2.6.32-41-generic (2.6.32-41.90) ...
Running depmod.
update-initramfs: deferring update (hook will be called later)
Failed to symbolic-link /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-41-generic to initrd.img: File exists
dpkg: error processing linux-image-2.6.32-41-generic (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 17
Errors were encountered while processing:
 linux-image-2.6.32-41-generic
----------

I finally discovered that all I had to do was follow each kernel update with a call to update-initramfs, e.g.

  sudo update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.32-41-generic

As of kernel 2.6.32-42-generic this "workaround" no longer... er, "works around" the problem.

Please let me know if I can provide any additional information that might be useful. I'm currently down to one working system, so itmay take me a few days to figure out how to capture a serial console stream if you think this might be helpful.

    It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan,
    more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage, than the
    creation of a new system. For the initiator has the emnity of all
    who would profit by the preservation of the old institutions and
    merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new ones.

P.S. Your browser-based autosubmission asks for two files. Since I can'tfigure out whether the automatic data capture has already included their contents, and since I don't know how to "attach" them through this process, here they are. Please feel free to trim this report toremoveany duplication. <grin!>
