Crash on boot

I was going to reboot the system and got an error message upon booting it again. No clue how to fix it, if it even can be fixed. Might have to reinstall the whole thing?

The error message reads as follows:
[FAILED] Failed to start Deactivate Plymouth Boot Screen.
See 'systemctl status plymouth-deactivate.service' for details.
[ OK ] Finished Hold until boot process finishes up.

It's stuck like this and doesn't go any further.

Does this help?

Thanks for your response. I got another error message after this:

OS: Garuda Linux x86_64
Kernel: 5.11.6-zen1-1-zen
Uptime: 3 mins

Packages: 1682 (pacman)
Shell: fish paleofetch: Could not open /sys/class/drm to determine resolution in tty mode.

I'm not sure exactly what message ctrl alt F3 should have accomplished but I'm guessing this wasn't it.
I should add I managed to reset Garuda to an earlier reset point but got the same error message when rebooting again.


Thanks, but that won't help. I figured out what's causing this. Somehow I've got 17 different boots to choose from on my bios. Originally, I had two. I have no idea how they came to be, and I don't know how to fix it either. Once I have to reboot the system I will have the same issue again until that is resolved. Do you know how to do this?

man efibootmgr
