"Quota mode: none" showing up when booting from the hard drive

UbuntuDigitalOcean Droplets

First of all, I was using the server as normal via an ssh connection. While updating the system (Ubuntu 21.04 x64) there were some errors saying that “following daemons are outdated, choose which to restart”. As I am quite new to server maintenance and all that stuff, I have reboot my Droplet through Digital Ocean Dashboard. And when the Ubuntu turned on, I could not access the terminal.

Only thing popping up -> EXT4-fs (vda1): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null). Quota mode: none.

I tried to boot from ISO, but still, I cannot log in to my server with normal ssh as I have been doing up today. How can I fix this issue safely by keeping all my data on the server?

Hi @nuriddinislamov,

It seems to me something in your grub configuration might be wrong. What I’ll suggest is for you to contact DigitalOcean support. They should be able to check the reason why your Droplet is not booting and provide you with assistance to fix the issue.

Sadly, we in the Community can’t really help with these issues as most of the time the user that’s reporting them doesn’t have access to the Droplet once the issue has occurred.

Anyway, please do keep us informed and once you have any information please share it with us. I’m eager to understand what was the issue.

  • @KFSys, thank you for helping me out. I have reached support engineers and they replied that the filesystem is completely broken. So as a solution migrating to a new server was suggested. I did that - logged into recovery mode with ISO boot and downloaded all my necessary directories with a temporary root password. All done, new server and new IP. It’s good to mention, that filesystem got broken when I turned off the Droplet from the web dashboard. Some update processes were running and I forced to stop them. That’s all. Thanks to the community and support guys🙌
