UEFI: Kernel Panic randomly 'initramfs unpacking failed junk in compressed archive'

Sadly I am not really sure where to search for the error myself. The only think that comes to my mind is trying to remove the "so it seems" broken initrd and create a new one. You can do so on an installed system by running
Code:
sudo update-initramfs -d   #This removes an existing initramfs
sudo update initramfs -c   #This creates a new initramfs
The strange thing is that the alternative bootloader is not showing that problem with the initramfs. Therefore I am not really sure if it is really the culprit here or not.

Hi

No cigar...

Code:
$ sudo update-initramfs -d -k all
update-initramfs: Deleting /boot/initrd.img-3.16.3

$ sudo update-initramfs -c -k 3.16.3
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.16.3
W: mdadm: /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf defines no arrays.
W: mdadm: no arrays defined in configuration file.

Still does the same

I also did update-grub2 also to see if that made any difference - it didn't.

Atm. I am out of ideas.
But we will keep an eye on this and try to reproduce it.

Cheers leszek.

Perhaps I shall try reinstalling it after I recreate a new GPT partition table (i.e so its the only OS on the disk) and see if that helps...

If I do I shall report.
