Q.  What does this error mean: grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template

A.  Grubby was not able to add a new kernel to your grub config file.

I noticed my /boot/grub2/grub.cfg file was empty.
So I build it with:

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Then I reinstalled the kernel:
rpm -e kernel<version> dnf install kernel<version>
I didn't get the error when dnf ran.
