It looks like it's a common problem.

Managed to fix the problem.
I Googled 'ubuntu has booted to busybox' and viewed a few results and found the command to fix the error...

While still in 'Busybox', I typed the command below
fsck /dev/sda1
NOTE: Change the sda1 to where ever you have your OS installed.

You could always force dolphin back to 4.15 .. but if you have the backports repo installed (which is **supposed** to seamlessly move you to the latest KDE), I can't guarantee that won't give you other problems.

As we can see, it doesn't as shouldn't I have the latest version of Dolphin installed?
QuoteAs dolphin 4.16 now doesn't appear to require dolphin-dbg, it might be worth seeing what would happen if you simply uninstalled dolphin-dbg .. what's the output from dolphin-dbg

According to the reply from someone dealing with the bug report I filed, the info that dolphin-dbg provides was not included in my debug info which was automatically uploaded, so it looks like dolphin-dbg is not included in the installation of dolphin 16.04.
Quotesudo apt-get -s remove --purge dolphin-dbg
As I am unable to provide you with the output from my desktop version (as it's currently crashed), I can provide you with the output from my laptop, which I am having the same problem;

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package dolphin-dbg

the above command is only a "simulated dry run", nothing will actually get uninstalled .. it'll just tell us what would happen if we ran it without the "-s" option, so we can check if it'd be safe.

Have you got a LiveUSB ?
(really you should always have one of these)

I have, you've probably forgot you helped me install Multiboot (I think it was written by someone French).
Well, I've got the boot repair, gparted and multiple os'es and lots of other stuff.

QuoteIf so, boot to it, and post the output from:

Linux Support / [SOLVED] Unable to boot to desktop
November 27, 2018, 12:14:20 PM
I have just rebooted my computer* and all seemed well until just after the splash screen, when I got this...

BusyBox v1.22.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.22.0-15ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs) _ <--- flashing cursor

I have already tried boot repair disk  (https://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair-cd/) and then rebooted and it booted to the same state as above.


* Just before shut-down of the system to reboot, a couple of warnings popped up telling me that it was unable to write to disk, probably something to do with writing the state of the system to disk!
#24
Found this story on exploit.in (a Russian site)

The Doctor Web specialists have discovered a trojan designed for the extraction of cryptocurrency, which can infect other network devices and remove antiviruses running in the system. The threat received the identifier Linux.BtcMine.174 and is a large script written in the command shell language containing more than 1000 lines of code.

Malware consists of several components. So, when launching, the trojan checks the availability of the server from which it subsequently downloads other modules, and searches for a folder on the disk with write permissions into which these modules will then be loaded. After this, the script is moved to a previously selected folder named diskmanagerd and re-launched as a daemon. For this, the trojan uses the nohup utility. If it is not in the system, it automatically downloads and installs the coreutils utilities package, including nohup.

If the installation is successful on the device, the malicious script downloads one of the versions of the Linux.BackDoor.Gates.9 Trojan. The backdoors of this family allow you to execute commands from attackers and carry out DDoS attacks.

After installation, malware looks for competing miners in the system and, upon detection, completes their processes. If the trojan was not launched on behalf of the superuser (root), it uses a set of exploits to escalate its privileges on the infected system. Analysts of Doctor Web have identified at least two problems exploited by him: these are CVE-2016-5195 (aka DirtyCow ) and CVE-2013-2094 . At the same time, the sources of the exploit for DirtyCow are downloaded from the Internet by the Trojan compiles directly on the infected machine.

After this, the malware tries to find antivirus services running under the names safedog, aegis, yunsuo, clamd, avast, avgd, cmdavd, cmdmgd, drweb-configd, drweb-spider-kmod, esets and xmirrord. If they are detected, the malware does not just end the antivirus process, but with the help of package managers, deletes its files and the directory in which the anti-virus product was installed.

Then the trojan registers itself at startup, downloads and launches a rootkit on an infected device. This module is also designed as a sh script and is based on source code that was previously published in the public domain. Among the functions of the rootkit module, you can highlight the theft of user-supplied passwords for the su command, hiding files in the file system, network connections and running processes. The trojan collects information about network nodes that were previously connected via the ssh protocol and tries to infect them.

After completing all these steps, the Trojan finally launches the miner, designed for the production of Monero cryptocurrency (XMR), in the system. At intervals of one minute, the malware checks to see if this miner is running, and automatically restarts it if necessary. It also connects to the managing server in a continuous loop and downloads updates from there, if they are available.

That's strange as I've not forced  the installation of 16.04, it may be because I've got backports repo loaded, even then, the backports repo is installed on a fresh install. So, I'm stuck!!!
#26
Is there a way I can force install the latest version of Dolphin. I've had a Google but I could not find any specifics on how to install other versions.

I'm not sure how to ask or do it, what I need to do is remove owncloud which is causing problems.
#29
Lol Mark, you sound like my dad  ;)
The PPA's didn't cause the problem as they came after the installation of Dolphin as that was installed upon installation of the OS ages ago.

Recent versions don't have external PPA's, so what you're saying is that from version XX the dbg is built in?
So, if I want to escape this bug, how can I install the latest (or higher) version?
#30
I have entered a bug report but it is incomplete due to Dolphin being unable to report its crash properly as the version of the dbg file is a lower version than the version of Dolphin I have installed, which is 4:16.04.3-0ubuntu2.1~ubuntu16.04~ppa1 and the repo version is 4:15.12.3-0ubuntu1
