Public bug reported: Missing font dependency --> plymouth initramfs hook fails --> update- initramfs fails --> new kernel failed to install.
Bionic Lubuntu alternate 20180221 update-initramfs -c -k all It gives an error: Rebuilding ramfs...be patient update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.13.0-32-generic cp: cannot stat '/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/DejaVuSerif.ttf': No such file or directory E: /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/plymouth failed with return 1. update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-4.13.0-32-generic with 1. I checked and the directory /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/ does not exist. Fyi...the 4.15 kernel just came out. This caused the 4.15 kernel to fail to install. If I apt-get install fonts-dejavu-core it will work around this issue. ** Affects: plymouth (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New ** Tags: iso-testing -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1751184 Title: Plymouth initramfs hook needs missing dependancy fonts-dejavu-core so update-initramfs fails To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/plymouth/+bug/1751184/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
