TL;DR question: previous build for the same version made new kernel unbootable, is this a known issue/fixed now?

I notice that this obsoleted FEDORA-2019-cadb2ea4bf. I accidentally had that earlier one installed, together with a kernel update, in the same dnf update --enablerepo=updates-testing --security transaction. The new kernel version was unbootable (missing modules it seems).

I booted into an older kernel, noticed that new kernel wasn't really fully installed (one of the kernel-* packages was not listing as installed for that version, forget which).distro-synced grub back to 2.02-84, deleted the (partially installed) new kernel, rebooted again, installed the new kernel, and this time all looks normal, new kernel version is bootable.

This update has been pushed to testing.
