In case of Arch Linux when kernel updates it deletes all initramfs and
vmlinuz related to that kernel just before the update.
So when there is update to linux as well as linux-lts and something
happens while upgrade is running, none of the kernels will boot.
So best way is to, update each kernel separately. (I normally use pacman
-Syu --ignore 'linux-lts*')
