Question

I update every 2nd or 3rd week, if an error i wait a week n try again. This issue has been ongoing a month or so. Have googled a lot and read these forums but at a loss how to fix it. A really old kernel still boots from menu but two recent ones do not. ie ego boot update has failed.  is "manual" grub cmd line available ?

 # ego boot update
ERROR: Ego encountered an unexpected error: UnicodeDecodeError
ERROR: Full traceback written to /tmp/ego-traceback-23011.txt.
