Description Marian Csontos 2017-09-15 06:52:51 UTC
Description of problem:
After updating 7.4 machine system is not bootable - can not switch root - /usr/lib/os-release.d missing.
There is only os.release.d. See the dot instead of dash? I have not spotted it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 7.4
2. update to 7.5
3. reboot
4. boom

/etc/os-release -> ../usr/lib/os-release
/usr/lib/os-release -> ./os.release.d/os-release-rhel

There is no /usr/lib/os-release.d, only os.release.d

Actual results:
system not bootable

Expected results:
system should boot

Additional info:
When reinstalling redhat-release I got followin warning:

Ah thanks, most likely happened as part of merging redhat-release package into one.
