That's the usual problem when the read-only nfsroot is not writeable.
Even you server was upgraded, I pretty sure that the FAI nfsroot was
not rebuilt.
The read-only issue is often caused by a NFS v4 issue. You can fix
that by forcing NFS v3 for the nfsroot. I do this by adding
nfsver=3 to the pxelinux.cfg file for the install client. The whole
option then looks like this:

Also make sure you are using the option rootovl if you are using a 4.x
kernel which enables overlayfs. In the past we used the option aufs,
but this is only for 3.x kernels.
