…and you uninstalled the current, working kernel, have fun. Congratulations, you just nuked your current working kernel and there is a half-baked initrd image that will not work on the next boot. If you haven’t restarted yet, delete the half-baked initrd image and go reinstall the respective package that contains the kernel.
Seriously, to anyone updating their kernels, don’t forget to check if you have enough space in /boot in order for mkinitrd to build an updated ramdisk, and for some, additional space for DKMS to save a backup of the kernel. Forget that, you’re hosed if you are afraid of the command line. Fortunately, recovery is possible with a live boot medium and chroot.
Now, say it with me: “The command line is my friend. The command line is my friend. The command line is my friend.”
The command line is everyone’s friend.
