Re: updatemanager 2.8.7 error upgrading kernel

Yeah, my computer is a not-so-new HP and has major issues booting UEFI -- Will boot the live USB but will not boot into the installation when done. Says it can't find a boot drive. I went on to install Fedora 23 UEFI and it would not take either. So, when I reinstalled SolydXK I went with separate p...

Re: updatemanager 2.8.7 error upgrading kernel

It does suggest something odd with the extended attributes. Does lsattr on that file (or lsattr /boot to check everything in that directory) give any indication? Doing a Google search (startpage.com, actually) with "before installing new version: Operation not permitted" produced a large number of ...

Re: updatemanager 2.8.7 error upgrading kernel

Unfortunately, it would appear that I have something different going on.
None of the information in that thread resolved the issue.
Same error message even after a full reinstall... :(
