we would like to inform you about an issue with yesterday's Stable update.
The 2765.2.4 Stable release includes kernel 5.10.37 which can result in kernel panics related to memory mapping.
issue was reported to us in
and limited to certain
hardware that is not part of the release testing.
The rollout of the
2765.2.4 Stable update got stopped in the public update server and it
announces 2765.2.3 again as latest version for the mean time.
A new Linux kernel bug fix release already got published and we will include the fix soon in a follow-up Stable release.
case your instances have downloaded the new version already but not yet
rebooted, you can discard the pending update as follows:
$ update_engine_client -reset_status
$ sudo cgpt add -T 0 $(sudo cgpt find -t flatcar-usr 2>/dev/null | grep --invert-match "$(rootdev -s /usr)")
second command will make sure that even when the system reboots, it
will not attempt to use the 2765.2.4 partition because there are zero
boot "tries" for it.
Feel free to reach out and comment on the linked issue if you have questions on how to handle this issue.
