  • Edit your question and show me free -h and sysctl vm.swappiness and sudo lshw -C memory. Start comments to me with @heynnema or I'll miss them.

  • I fixed the issue by removing a swapfile. I disabled the swap with the command swapoff.

Possible swap/memory problem.

BIOS

Your have BIOS version S1200SP.86B.03.01.0042.013020190050 dated 01/30/2019.

There's a newer BIOS available, dated June 2020, and it can be downloaded here.

Note: Have good backups before updating the BIOS.

Memtest

Go to https://www.memtest86.com/ and download/run their free memtest to test your memory. Get at least one complete pass of all the 4/4 tests to confirm good memory. This may take many hours to complete.

Update #1:

As I previously thought... you have swap problems.

You have THREE swap locations, as seen in /etc/fstab!

UUID="X-X-X-X-X" swap swap defaults 0 0
UUID="X-X-X-X-X" swap swap defaults 0 0
/swapfile swap swap defaults 0 0

Do sudo swapoff -a # turn off swap

Then comment out ALL three of the above lines in /etc/fstab.

It's never ok to completely disable swap. It's not appropriate to have too small of a swap. You have both problems.

Let's create an appropriate /swapfile for your system.

Note: Incorrect use of the dd command can cause data loss. Suggest copy/paste.

sudo swapoff -a           # turn off swap
sudo rm -i /swapfile      # remove old /swapfile

sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1M count=4096

sudo chmod 600 /swapfile  # set proper file protections
sudo mkswap /swapfile     # init /swapfile
sudo swapon /swapfile     # turn on swap
free -h                   # confirm 32G RAM and 4G swap

Add this line to /etc/fstab...

/swapfile    none    swap    sw      0   0

Then reboot the system and verify operation.

If it all works, you can use gparted to delete the two disk partitions with the UUIDs shown in the commented out lines in /etc/fstab. Be careful here, and assure that you've got the correct partitions to delete. Then delete those three commented out lines in /etc/fstab.

Although the question seems answered, to anyone that finds themselves here with the same CPU error (in addition to heynnemas answer) check your PCI cable connections to any graphics cards you have connected.

I had the same errors and problems stopped after disconnecting a graphics card which I later realised had a faulty (and charred) 6-Pin connection. Replacing the cable returned system functions to normal.

I would also recommend checking CPU/memory timings are not too crazy and that the CPU cooler is attached correctly (tightly).

I had this error on a VM in a locally run VM farm whose disks were full. The hypervisor was not able to allocate more space to "thin" disk partitions (these have physical space allocated on demand, and the farm was oversubscribed). Note that the hypervisor requires a certain overhead to run (perhaps 10%), and will reserve that space.

It turned out that one of the physical machines had had a problem and wasn't reporting freed up disk space, which lead to the VM farm halucinating that the disks were full. When that machine was rebooted, the problem went away. We're doing an OS and hypervisor update --- hopefully that will prevent the issue in the future.

I had a similar error print when using the accelerator to do compression , I updated the BIOS and the issue was resolved.
