  Kernel panic - not syncing (clean 15.10 install)

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've just installed Kubuntu 15.10 and was able to boot into it once
  and update the kernel. Since then, everytime I try to boot into it I
  get the following error message:

  Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-

  There might be other error messages before but I cannot see them as
  they pass too fast, and the only messages I see are those shown in the
  attached picture.

  After some trial and error, I've discovered that this bug occurs when
  booting with the quiet option. When I remove it, the kernel boots fine
  most of the time (not everytime, but it's a definite improvement).

  What's happening and how do I prevent it?
