Grub has multiple garuda entries but no timeshift snapshots

Hi folks,

Been running Garuda fine with no problems for about 2 years now, but wasn't able to boot this morning. I upgraded a few days ago, but everything seemed fine. After not being able to boot I went into grub looking for a snapshot to roll back to, but the grub menu didn't contain any, but contained a separate garuda linux entry for every snapshot instead. It's really strange because this has always worked in the past and I can't think what I've done to change. Running update grub says No Snapshots Found but running timeshift --list clearly shows my snapshots. Any ideas what's going on?

Thanks!

It could be this grub-btrfs open issue

It looks like downgrading btrfs-progs to 6.0.2-1 fixed temporarily the issue for several users in that bug report, till a fix arrives.

I agree, that is strange. Are you able to boot into these snapshots?

Have you tried reinstalling Grub first? Recently there was an update to the Grub package that came down kind of broken for some folks.

In your case, to reinstall Grub:

sudo grub-install --target=i386-pc /dev/sdd

Then update Grub again.

sudo update-grub

Thanks! I'll give that a shot.
Not possible to boot into all the additional grub entries unfortunately.
