Armbian Ubuntu Bionic 5.15.25 kernel fail

Hi all,

I have a Rock64 running on the "official" image (at the time, according to the official Pine64 documentation) "Armbian Ubuntu Bionic XFCE Desktop". Recently I updated it but suddenly it stopped working. After rebooting, all the 3 LEDs were lit, ON all the time and that was about it. I thought it was some kind of SD card corruption because it couldn't load some files from the SD card after the update and before rebooting. The only thing that came to mind to fix this was to restore a backup I had from Dec 2020. So I restored it and it worked again! But guess what... after updating the 280 packages that had an update, it stopped working again. But this time it was different. This time it just didn't find the ethernet card. So I could log in into the board locally, the display worked fine through HDMI but there was no network at all. I tried to show all network devices and the card was nowhere to be found. So I thought there was some kind of problem with the kernel. I flashed my backup again and I kept back around 5 packages, linux-image-current-rockchip64 and linux-dtb-current-rockchip64 among them. After that, it still worked so I knew it was one of those 5. At the end I realised the one that broke it was the linux-image-current-rockchip64 as I suspected and it was going from 21.08.2 to 22.02.1. I think that goes from a 5.10.63 kernel to a 5.15.25. This is the moment when it happened:

update-initramfs: Converting to u-boot format

 And that's it, after rebooting the network card doesn't work anymore. I've tried to run 
 

depmod -a
update-initramfs -u

 before updating that package to no avail, still the same errors. I've tried to have both linux-image-current-rockchip64 and linux-dtb-current-rockchip64 packages on the same 21.08.2 version and update both at the same time but the problem still persists. Other people over the DietPi forums are having other kind of issues, like USB3 or other devices not working. So I think there is some problem with this kernel. I know Armbian doesn't support the rock64 any more officially but I thought it was worth to report the problem.

 

Thank you!
