Garuda (2.5.4-2):
System install date:     2022-01-11
Last full system update: 2022-02-15
Is partially upgraded:   No
Relevant software:       NetworkManager
Windows dual boot:       No/Undetected
Snapshots:               Snapper
Failed units:            bluetooth-autoconnect.service

First things to try


personally I'd just reboot and choose a previous snap shot (to get you back in), then NOT update for a day or so so that whatever caused it, will have been picked up hopefully or just snyc'd completely as per the previous post. Ain't btrfs snaps just great for bleeding edge os's!

thank the smart people that made this partition table, it saves my buns so many times xD


Worked for me! Thanks!
