Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 does not boot after I installed Ubuntu Desktop 18.04.2 to external HDD.
Please rescue my data ... .

I will write as much of the log as possible.

    I suspect the new installation installed a fresh grub that's botched. Try grub-repair. – To Do Jul 10 at 16:58
  • Hmmm ... it worked unexpectedly. I executed boot-repair from the external HDD, but all data seems to be lost. Log: paste.ubuntu.com/p/3bHHYwsfCy – Nerahikada Jul 10 at 19:35
  • Ah, my property has disappeared in an instant, but there may be days when this happens. I would like to spend enough time healing today. ;( – Nerahikada Jul 10 at 19:45
  • Didn't you have a backup? This is important especially when doing operations like the installation of an OS. – To Do Jul 11 at 8:47
  • It was a backup and storage server... – Nerahikada Jul 11 at 9:25
