Re: lvmetad

Are you sure you aren't thinking of lvmetad? With a lowercase L?

I'm having the same problem, and I'm not in virtualbox.  In arch-chroot here's what I get back from grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Generating grub.cfg ...
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux
Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-linux.img
  WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad: No such file or directory. Falling back to internal scanning.
  No volume groups found

Now, grub.cfg does generate, and there's no non-zero exit status from grub-mkconfig, and lvmetad is present in the /usr/sbin/ directory. 

Could this just be a bug and not really a major problem?

Re: lvmetad

I see the error when I use lvm commands in a manual chroot, no grub involved. I think it's about access to lvmetad service/daemon rather than access to a file. It has never caused me any problems.

But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.
