On this update I got error:

Error on command line is like this (this is from older kernel version but same thing):
:: Code ::
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools (0.136ubuntu6) ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-5.6.14-xanmod1
I: The initramfs will attempt to resume from /dev/dm-2
I: (/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1)
I: Set the RESUME variable to override this.

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Which was fixed with:

So what is giving initramfs-tools error is that linux-libc-dev update is missing when kernel is updated. Please update libc alongside with kernel to prevent errors.
