No symbol table found

  • During the boot of Ubuntu, you may see the message "No symbol table found." The following article explains how to fix it.

    1 If you are using Virtio

    The following will work if you have a virtual server (KVM-Linux) using virtio with the operating system installed on the first storage device:

    Code
    1. sudo grub-install /dev/vda
    2. sudo update-grub


    2 If you are not using virtio

    The following will work if you have a dedicated server (or in case you are not using virtio) with the operating system installed on the first storage device:

    Code
    1. sudo grub-install /dev/sda
    2. sudo update-grub


    It is now fixed. You shouldn't see that message anymore in the following reboots.
