I recently updated from Ubuntu 18.04 to 19.10. It looks to me as if the update installed an older kernel (5.3.0-29) than the one I had running under 18.04 (5.0.0-36). Since then I've had errors on all apt updates which show initramfs failing:
Setting up initramfs-tools (0.133ubuntu10) ... update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated) Processing triggers for initramfs-tools (0.133ubuntu10) ... update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-5.3.0-29-generic Error 24 : Write error : cannot write compressed block E: mkinitramfs failure cpio 141 lz4 -9 -l 24 update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-5.3.0-29-generic with 1. dpkg: error processing package initramfs-tools (--configure): installed initramfs-tools package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: initramfs-tools E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
My output of uname -r is
alex@acer:~$ dpkg --list | grep linux-image ii linux-image-5.0.0-36-generic 5.0.0-36.39 amd64 Signed kernel image generic ii linux-image-5.3.0-29-generic 5.3.0-29.31 amd64 Signed kernel image generic ii linux-image-generic 220.127.116.11.33 amd64 Generic Linux kernel image
Any ideas on how to solve? I'm not even sure what the issue is, but have gone through plenty of other solutions.
