Hi @Homelistt - Generally that's nothing to worry about though it does bring up something you may want to address. Your OS is currently using UUIDs rather than generic identifiers in it's /etc/fstab so you may want to change them over to generic so you don't run into this warning message or other potential problems when cloning a Linode or restoring a backup.

There's more info on that specific error on the Ubuntu forums here:
