grub-mkconfig not terminating

Hello,
I have a problem while trying to run

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

.
My Thinkpad is not finishing the command. It is just busy saying nothing.

After further research I loggedin to the installation env via ssh and took a look into htop.

My Command hangs running

vgs --options vg_uuid,pv_name --noheadings --separator :

running this command under arch-chroot (in the newly installed enviroment):
the command replies:

WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to device scanning.
WARNING: /dev/nvme0n1 not initalized in udev database even after waiting 1000000000 microseconds
WARNING: /dev/loop0 not initalized in udev database even after waiting 1000000000 microseconds

WARNING: /dev/sda1 not initalized in udev database even after waiting 1000000000 microseconds
..
..
..

grub-mkconfig was running for over an hour, without outputting anything.
Can you give me a hint where the problem can be?
What am I doing wrong?

Re: grub-mkconfig not terminating

I recommend not using grub-mkconfig, which sucks, and writing your own very simple grub.cfg instead.
