After routinly pacman -Syu, kernel says no init file was found

Hey guys,

I'm running Arch Linux on an OVH VPS. Today I ran `pacman -Syu` and after I rebooted I saw I couldn't SSH to my server and I saw in the KVM on the website control panel that the kernel panicked and that it couldn't find an init file.

I've rebooted into rescue mode (which is like inserting a live USB image and mounting the original operating system to it) and I've checked several things:

  • That grub was updated successfully - here is my `/boot/grub.cfg`.

  • That I do have an `init` file.

I've extracted the `pacman.log` here: https://gist.github.com/doronbehar/b788 … 68176ca856

Is there anything else I can check before trying to reboot again? I hope I won't have to reinstall my OS, it takes a lot of time to set up my Nextcloud instance and my postgresql and other applications and configurations..

Thanks in advance. I hope you could help.

Problem solved.

I chrooted again with `arch-chroot` installed from source and I installed the `filesystem` package which recreated the `/usr/lib64` symlink which I had the courage to remove which it's absence prevented `/sbin/init` to run.
