Any idea? How to fix this problem. Out me every time startup or reboot ??

enter image description here

  • What problem? Please edit your question and ask an actual question instead of posting an image. I see at least two (hard to read) "FAILED" warnings. Are those the problem? If so, copy the text into your question so we can search for it and also show the output of running systemctl status console-setup.service as the error message tells you to do.

You should run systemctl status console-setup.service as per suggestion to have a look at the problem.

You may need to execute

sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration


sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

and provide suitable answers to the questions those commands ask to recreate a 'working' configuration.

  • Thank you very much. problem governments now do , however, like go to places did I get the following "/dev/sda5: clean, 2586001/18923520 files, 2611929/75683328 blocks How can governments ???

  • I have the same problem. But the dpkg reconfigure commands also generate errors

I used the command: sudo systemctl enable console-setup

The next time the system started. There was no red message: "Failed to start console ..."


As suggested here, you can try:

sudo systemctl restart console-setup.service

I had the same problem on Debian Stretch, and this resolved it for me. The error did not recur on reboot.
