Encrypted system won't boot after kernel upgraded to 4.18
Open, HighPublic


After upgrade some people reported that they cannot boot, the error they get is:

No key available with this passphrase.

Booting older kernel works. To fix the issue, it is required to rebuild initram:

sudo update-initramfs -u

After this, they can boot into new kernel normally.
