What's wrong?

Never tried a RPI2 image, but I really don't see any concrete reason which it shoudn't be working for. Personally I followed this procedure on both RPi3 and Odroid C2. Had you perhaps modified cmdline.txt too so as to point the kernel to a root partition different from the default one (lda0)...and forgot to apply the same modification after upgrading? On the other hand the boot partition should by itself contain everything needed to boot already, so, were that the case, the boot procedure should rather fail at mounting root
