Might be a problem with grubby. I don't know what writes the template that is missing.
Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2011-10-21 11:58:39 EDT
Which option did you choose at the bootloader upgrade screen: "new bootloader configuration" or "skip bootloader configuration"?
Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2011-10-21 11:59:30 EDT
Please attach the full logs. Those errors from grubby aren't actually necessarily as fatal as they seem (you get the same errors when you do a yum upgrade from f15 to f16 and then update the kernel, but grub config actually gets updated correctly).
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2011-10-21 12:28:14 EDT
I didn't choose any bootloader option, it was an automated upgrade using preupgrade. Bug 741538 has logs from an install of another machine with the same problem.
Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2011-10-21 12:30:35 EDT
ah. if you used preupgrade then this is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=737731 . There's now an updated F15 build of preupgrade: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/preupgrade-1.1.10-1.fc15 which should have this fixed. Please re-test with that. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 737731 ***
