Fix print_req_error: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0

After fresh installation of Ubuntu, we noticed our terminal with flood of packets showing this message

Ubuntu Floppy Eror

The error occurs because of kernel assuming to have floppy disk and trying to find one. In order to resolve this, run following commands

$ sudo rmmod floppy

$ echo "blacklist floppy" | tee /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-floppy.conf

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure initramfs-tools
