Re: additional IP address after upgrade?

Additional ip shouldn't matter, what matters is what are you using as your dns ip? What is in your /etc/reoslv.conf? Why do you think dhcp is involved? And lastly what is the status of NetworkManager.service?

Re: Commands not working.

try fasting on moonless Sunday nights for a few moons to fix it.

Alternatively, make an effort to learn what PATH is in linux.

I donate blood to help vampires(sometimes on moonless nights), don't judge me :)

Re: when x does not boot

in /etc/grub/default on the line which says 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT'
Initially on the grub menu you can press e and then add vga=ask then ctrl+x to boot to get a list of supported resolutions.
If you are happy you can make the changes permanent by editing /etc/grub/default.

Re: Encrypted boot disk

You can add the root unlock luks key in initramfs by specifying its location in /etc/cryptsetup-initramfs/conf-hook AND then regenerate initramfs. As far as /boot is concerned I do not suppose that is encrypted on instances provided in public cloud. I did not find 'insmod cryptodisk' in grub.cfg on ...

Re: when x does not boot

You can add vga=ask as a kernel parameter in your grub file. Then on the next boot select one of the supported resolutions.

Re: Debian Buster - System Monitor Works Only On Root User

Thanks for checking. Well bravo KDE I guess for allowing root to have easy access to gui apps. My understanding is that its generally not advisable for root to access to X.

@OP you my want to check xsession errors as advised by hoas.

Re: SELinux sandbox on Debian.

I installed "policycoreutils-sandbox" package too, but problem exist. How can I solve it? I do not suppose that policy is for the sandbox package you have installed. You can inspect the current policies here /sys/fs/selinux/policy. I reckon you need to create a custom policy for your sand...
