Everyone who didn't just install DFly has two kernels. I have 5.9 in /boot/
kernel and 5.5 in /boot/kernel.old/. Also in /boot1/kernel I have 5.5 and in /
boot1/kernel.old some older version.

What went wrong is that the package database is in /var, and I didn't tar /var 
on the failed disk because the failed sector was in /var/log and I saw no 
point in transferring log files to the new disk. So when I upgraded packages, 
it did not delete the files belonging to the old packages.
