I can't tell you what's going on with the /boot/grub2/fonts directory;
I've never seen that error message before.  However, I will point out
the /sys is a dummy filesystem, like tmpfs.  There is no need to back
it up, anymore than /tmp.

almost gently.  The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all
possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true.
