Issue while updating from parrot v5.1 to v5.2

Briefly describe your issue below:
I am currently running 5.1.0-parrot1-3t-amd64, I tried updating my OS, and it crashed, there were no errors while installing the update, further explaining what I mean by crash - the system boots up, but I can only see the black|grey screen with a pointer after the booting process instead on log-in screen.
In the end I use GRUB to load back parrot-5.1 while my laptop boots up and it works fine.

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64

Sorry, i am unaware of this, this is what uname -a returns
“Linux parrot 5.1.0-parrot1-3t-amd64 #1 SMP Parrot 5.1.3-1parrot1.3t (2019-05-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux”

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
Debian Standard

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)
no

Hi fumenoid, how did you make the update/upgrade?
Parrot OS recommend execute this commands for upgrade:

  • sudo parro-upgrade
    or
  • sudo apt update
  • sudo apt full-upgrade
    I think that Parrot is developed over Debian 10 or 9 (i’m not 100% sure right now) but often is one of the latest versions.

I followed the usual prompt that checks for update, tried these two commands but they didn’t worked, will try it again, i guess

Did try it using sudo apt update then sudo apt full-update and here all what gone wrong and i don’t know what to do about it

Hi man, sorry for a late reply
You can try sudo apt --fix-missing
By the way where are you trying to install de OS? Desktop, raspberry, usb with persistance?

I don’t think that work. The error happens because new kernel version is missing driver binaries for devices. It always happens and that is from Debian.
