Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The Ubuntu team have issued a hot fix for the recently released Ubuntu 20.04.2 media. The new fix, called 20.04.2.0, corrects an issue where the Ubiquity system installer could fail to properly install the Linux kernel on a new system. “Shortly after the release of Ubuntu 20.04.2, on Thursday February 4 2021, a regression was discovered[1] which means that on certain systems and under certain specific conditions the Ubuntu installer can fail to install a Linux kernel. This renders the system unable to boot. After carefully analysing the impact of this regression, the release team took the decision to reissue images of 20.04.2 with a corrected version of the installer[2]. These images are now available, versioned as 20.04.2.0.” Details on the bug and affected Ubuntu community flavours can be found in

Shortly after the release of Ubuntu 20.04.2, on Thursday February 4 2021,
a regression was discovered[1] which means that on certain systems and under
certain specific conditions the Ubuntu installer can fail to install a Linux
kernel. This renders the system unable to boot.

After carefully analysing the impact of this regression, the release team took
the decision to reissue images of 20.04.2 with a corrected version of the
installer[2]. These images are now available, versioned as 20.04.2.0. Only the
Ubuntu flavours listed below are affected. If you have downloaded the 20.04.2
release of any of these flavours, we encourage you to re-download the updated
versions.
