After rebooting and opening console, i see this error from droplet: error: "file /boot/grub/i386-pc/efi_gop.mod not found". I try to restore snapshot, maked from backup function, but problem is not repaired and already exist. How to repair my droplet?

If this is an older droplet it is very possible that it was using an old managed kernel. Since the configuration that tells your droplet where to look for the kernel and how to boot is within your droplet, when you rebooted it attempted to look for a service that was discontinued a while ago. This guide, specifically the "Setting Up the Droplet for Internal Kernel Mangement" should help you to resolve this issue.

Updating the kernel on your DigitalOcean Droplet is a straight forward process that differs slightly based on the Droplet's operating system. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of updating your kernels for DigitalOcean Droplets.
