Bug Description

Ever since the update to the 4.13.0-32 kernel, my system won't boot. When I turn off the splash screen and quiet, I see repeated messages about not connecting to lvmetad and falling back to device scanning.

The disk has a boot partition and a logical volume partition. The logical volume partition is encrypted with LUKS.

I can boot the 4.13.0-31 kernel with no problems (that's where the data for this bug was collected). I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this further.

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer to . Please test the latest v4.16 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as "Confirmed".

Thanks in advance.

4.16 kernel booted fine.

For some reason, having done the process of removing nvidia, virtual box, installing the 4.16 kernel, removing the 4.16 kernel, reinstalling nvidia and virualbox, my system now boots the 4.13.0-32 kernel. Not sure what fixed it.
