    Multiboot system - help with troublehooting

    Is there a way to start / run another OS while the current one is running?
    i like to retrieve log of faulty OS.

    Unless you are running a virtual machine: no, not on the same machine.

    How do you intend to retrieve a log from one running OS by using another? SSH, perhaps? Run another OS and mount the drive the other OS is installed on?

    I'm no expert, but have you considered using a live usb for your operating system, then mount the necessary partition(s) and access files from there? A live usb should give you access to you hard drive so you can find your files.
    I'm a firm believer that the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

    I have experiences total crash after running "sudo apt update" and was trying to
    capture the outputs from repository instigating the crash.
    But it seems futile to even try , so for now I am concentrating on fixing it.
    I have found solution , but since my original post got closed, for oblivious lack of concerns , i am not going to pursue this any further.
    I will only say the "closer" was correct - it was my fault for switching to 21.04 - 18 works flawlessly.

    SOLVED AND CLOSED ( for lack of interest )

    1. That is not what coffeecat said.

    2. You can't close the thread, but I can. So I am doing that. Would you like me to close the rest of your threads since this community is so woefully incapable of fulfilling your needs? I can also disable your account(s) and be done with it.
