can't update kernel

I have a VirtualBox VM that could not boot. systemd boot mount failed due to a failure to recognize vfat file type. Sorry I don't have the exact quote.

I loaded the main disk into a installer session and I tried to first to re-install the kernel, remove the kernel and headers, re-install, thrashing about until I  ended up with this mess.

uname -r && pacman -Q linux

5.18.16-arch1-1
linux 5.19.6.arch1-1

Here is the output from the attempt to upgrade

This is from an SSH session to the installer.

Re: can't update kernel

Most of the time this is because /boot wasn't mounted when you updated.

You have some serious filesystem problems, though. All of those ldconfig errors mean that things weren't written to disk. You need to reinstall all packages that have problems, probably easier to just reinstall all packages.
That error about linux.preset will probably require you to delete the file then reinstall the kernel package.

Yup. That's what I'll do.

Thanks.
