print_req_error: I/0 error, dev fd0, sector 0

Step 1

let’s list the block devices


if you are not using any floppy disk, there is no reason to have fd0 listed in the output of the command above.

Step 2

rmmod floppy

“rmmod is a simple program which removes (unloads) a module from the Linux kernel.” Now run step 1 again to verify that the fd0 is no longer listed.

Step 3

Run the following command to make the changes permanent

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

This command just create a file name blacklist-floppy.conf in the /etc/modprobe.d folder and appends the text “blacklist floppy” to it.

Step 4

The last step is to reconfigure the kernel

dpkg-reconfigure initramfs-tools
