Hi there,

During the above maintenance window, we will be performing upgrades related to our Spectre & Meltdown mitigation strategy. As a result, we will be temporarily disabling creates in the BLR1 region, and Droplets in the region may see delayed power ons, backups, and snapshots.

We expect the duration of this impact to be minimal, but have set a one hour window to ensure time for full recovery in case of any issues. If you have any questions, or concerns, please let us know.

The availability or performance of existing Droplets will not be impacted during this maintenance.

Kind Regards,
DigitalOcean

  • I am having the same problem after the Spectre/Meltdown patch occurred.

  • Have you attempted to access your droplet through the console in the control panel? Additional information on any error encountered should be shown there.

  • error:file '/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found
