Hi,

I does not look like your system is up-to-date. kernel-4.17.12 is somewhat old and unsupported by now.

I would suggest you update your system and install the newest kernel (4.18.13 as of today).

But before you run sudo dnf update, make sure dnf keeps enough kernels so you still have your old 4.17.9 that boots - in case the newer ones fail to boot just as 4.17.12 did.

You will have to increase the number of installonly_limit= in the /etc/dnf/dnf.conf file. (default is 3, maybe increase it to 5 or 6). This measure can be temporarily and you can go back to 3 after you verified that 4.18.x boots ok.

If you want to check what versions of the kernel packages are currently installed on your system, run rpm -qa kernel.
