Fedora 36 - fix for issue with new kernel installation

Published on Author admin

On UEFI Fedora 36 machines with long upgrade history (for instance starting from F25) you can encounter problem that after "dnf update kernel-core" new kernels are not being installed.

When directory /boot/efi// is present, system is trying to install new kernel images into /boot/efi// instead of /boot/, which issues with /boot/efi/ overflow.

Remove "/boot/efi//" directory:

rm /boot/efi/<machine id>/ -rf

After that reinstall kernel-core packages:

dnf reinstall kernel-core
