How exactly do I do this? “update my kernel from the Settings tab in your droplet’s page” <br> <br>I am getting the same problem as OP

Before upgrade Ubuntu 12.04 32x LTS. I test and change the /etc/fstab with this one it and working with no cryptsetup: Warning. <br> <br>sudo nano /etc/fstab <br> <br>LABEL=DOROOT / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 <br>

It did indeed - Thanks Kamal

@rvg: Update your droplet and /then/ update your kernel from the Settings tab in your droplet’s page. It should fix the kernel modules issue.

@raiyu - Could we get an update on the status of a resolution please? <br> <br>I ran across this issue earlier today.

This is an issue related to the kernel and modules being mismatched during the system upgrade and is caused by the fact that the kernel is being loaded through the hypervisor and not your local virtual machine. <br> <br>The fix to this is to allow customers to manage their own kernels in which case they would be synced to your system so running a system upgrade would not cause these errors. <br> <br>We are currently about 3-4 weeks away from releasing that so hopefully this issue will be resolved soon.

I’ve been seeing this same issue for quite some time. I just did another apt-get upgrade and it happened. Could you please publicize the solution? Googling around doesn’t give much insight (though I actually found this thread from Google).

Best to open a support ticket with the full output so we can help troubleshoot this with you.
