Console errors: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0

If you are receiving an error on the console about “dev fd0” it is a VM/Snapt configuration issue where we have incorrectly picked up a floppy device on the VM.

You do not have to worry about this, and it will not have any negative side effects, but you can disable it by running the following commands:


echo "blacklist floppy" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-floppy.conf

sudo rmmod floppyclear

sudo dpkg-reconfigure initramfs-tools
