Failed to boot after update




i did an update of the system (apt dist-upgrade), and after the system doesn't start anymore.


I use internal MMC, so I tryed to use last Armbian buster (Armbian_21.02.3_Helios64_buster_current_5.10.21.img) from sd card and it works.

I mounted the MMC, fsck and finally chrooted into it and did an apt update and dist-upgrade,


I atach the console log, the system hangs on Starting Kernel.

Can you try to boot from the SD card again, mount the eMMC and edit the /boot/armbianEnv.txt to increase verbosity (defaults to 1 which means less verbose, maximum value is 7).

Please then post the logs.

I found the errors! The /boot/armbianEnv.txt was corrupted, I replaced the file using that one from sd card, and then changed the UUID of the roor partition.

When I had it happen to me during an update it added/rewrote some text and added gibberish(special characters).  I was able to edit it to match some of the examples and put in my UUID and it booted right up.  I unfortunately don't have any screen shots or anything to show.
