Boot errors after update

Well i don’t think it would hurt anything irregardless if it was reinstalled and updated.

  • Grub does not break on its own. It just reveals resulted problems of the real breakage.
  • How did you set your filesystem up with btrfs subvolumes? Did you manually set it up or from an installer. Give more details. It is important.
  • btrfs is mostly used to help recover broken systems, using snapshots. Have you set any relevant restore utility and how? You could have used a snapshot to restore your previous state.
  • This could have been a 3rd party caused problem, from one of your multi-boot systems messing with BIOS/UEFI/boot. You should provide system details. From chroot, this sudo inxi -Faz, or equivalent.

I set it up manually a bit more than a year ago. Me from back then was smart and separated / and /home into subvolumes of @ and @home, nothing more complicated than that. Fstab looks like this for reference:

You have no idea how much I’m facepalming right now. Me from two weeks ago tried to boot into a snapshot and got a error: you need to load the kernel first, after which I realized I don’t have the time to look into it and forgot about it.

Me from two days ago was a major idiot and I manually deleted some snapshots to make space for updating the system via chroot. ;_; … The most recent snapshot that is still around is from the beginning of February. Goddamnit.

For now:
Reinstall grub (meaning pacman -S grub via chroot and then following the guide including os-prober) - right?

If the initramfs isn’t present then you can regenerate it with mkinitcpio -P .

How long do you have this setup without errors?
I am no btrfs expert, but it looks awful to me for some reason. Especially mounting permanently a partition in fstab on /mnt is unreliable IMHO. But having mounted both @ and /(subvolid=5) subvolumes looks scary to me.

I would check btrfs layout/listing both from outside and inside chroot. I am out of here. Call @dalto

Thank you, that was but a minor hiccup on the way sadly.

I was like “I know that name somehow…”

Last year July I had a boot issue after resizing partitions and that was who helped me back then and that fstab setup got a “Looks fine” at least from them. It did run without errors apart from when the Windows recovery tool / resizing the partition took a dump on grub back then. Initial setup was November 2020.

Thank you for the help though so far, being able to update/access pacman from the chroot was already a step forward. <3


As of now boot still looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/kAzAN6l.jpg

Is going forward like this safe?

That doesn’t look like a grub issue to me. Is the boot getting far enough that you can get to a TTY?

It would be great to see some logs so we can figure out why all those services are failing.

I did get into a TTY initially when the issue first popped up 2-3 weeks ago, these pictures are what I can offer from back then: https://imgur.com/a/QRBKbYz - I have not tried getting into one since.

These were the things that stood out to me (just typing them out because google):
(code=dumped, signal=BUS)

NetworkManager.service: Start request repeated too quickly.
NetworkManager.service: Failed with result 'core-dump'.
Failed to start Network Manager.

Is there something useful in there and if not what should I check for?

Need the logs from journalctl and they are going to be way too big to take a picture of.

I would boot off ISO, arch-chroot in and get the logs from there.

@dalto what do you think about the fstab posted from OP?

I could nitpick some things but I don’t see anything there that would cause an error.

This is the output of [root@EndeavourOS /]# sudo journalctl --since="2022-03-15 18:00:00" > logssince20220315.txt (covers everything since I decided to make this thread after not trying to boot into linux for ~2 weeks, more makes the filesize explode fast), please let me know if I should use other options instead. File turned out to be a bit too large for pastebin, I hope dropbox is fine:

You are getting tons of i/o errors. That would most commonly indicate your filesystem is full or corrupted.

Hm. As of right now df -h gives me /dev/sdb2 932G 916G 14G 99% /mnt for the SSD in question. I do remember just before the update via pacman --root /mnt --cachedir /mnt/var/cache/pacman/pkg -Syu on March 20th there were ~9.9GB free (which caused the update to fail).

That’s when I removed some btrfs snapshots to free up space (smart move, I’m aware now ;; ), update went through and now we’re at the above.

So that would explain some of them, but most definitely not the ones from today/yesterday after around ~1800).

Assuming the filesystem is somehow corrupted, how would we find out for sure & how should trying to fix that be approached? Accessing the data from the live medium seemed completely fine so far if that helps.

e: This section from here onwards was from today when free space was most definitely available:

-- Boot 8b9e0e646fe14b4b947845de3820c26a --
Mar 21 12:47:45 EndeavourOS kernel: microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0x28, date = 2019-11-12

e2: Since I saw a lot of /usr/lib/ related errors in there I thought I’d pacman -Syu via chroot again and then see if I can resolve the ldconfig complaints in there I mentioned earlier. This time around I got Bus errors that way too.

This did not happen before, the output for pacman -Syu that I showed in an earlier post looked a lot more… normal when it was a smaller update.

This is not what was suggested. Try the proper way (in case you are lucky and this helps…).

You were still getting i/o errors after that point.

There is something very wrong with your disk or filesystem.

Have you tried running btrfs check on it?

And smart test?

First of all, you’re all awesome, thank you. <3

In order of what I did, I hope the formatting is somewhat readable:

Yeah, I saw those errors too and they most definitely look scary given your comment earlier.

Looks fine? Let me know if I should check more specific arguments.

I did run (short) tests a few days ago and it looked fine. A little bit used up but passed all the tests.

Your disk is very nearly entirely filled. You might want to recover some space then, given

reinstall all packages.

You should also run a RAM test; silent filesystem corruption can happen if there’s an issue with your RAM.

Just to be clear:

  1. Free up space
  2. Reinstall all packages via pacman -Qqn | pacman -S -
  3. Hopefully maybe profit and then throw memtest86 at it over night?
