This means something is wrong with /dev/console and the kernel was unable
to create a tmpfs for /dev and populate it.

If you had no explicit "/tmpfs on /dev" setup before (I often use that on
purpose for systems with / on sd card), boot from install media, mount
your root disk and check the /dev on that.

If you had a "/tmpfs on /dev" setup, you need to find out why either the
tmpfs mount or the population failed (could be a missing MAKEDEV, which
should be either in /dev or in /etc).

I'm not sure if the frame buffer trying to attach and failing to do so
could also lead to a existing /dev/console, but the kernel rejecting
opening it.
