[SOLVED] cannot boot FAILED Failed to mount /boot

I have researched this error on this forum and no one has my exact problem.  They all lead to some other issue.

A little bit about my system.
This system has 4 systems on it.  All of them boot up up just fine except the one I am asking about.

[demo@Manjaro ~]$ lsblk
NAME         MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINTS
nvme0n1      259:0    0 931.5G  0 disk
├─nvme0n1p1  259:1    0   529M  0 part
├─nvme0n1p2  259:2    0   499M  0 part /boot/efi
├─nvme0n1p3  259:3    0    16M  0 part

├─nvme0n1p5  259:5    0   961M  0 part
├─nvme0n1p6  259:6    0    90G  0 part
├─nvme0n1p7  259:7    0 410.6G  0 part /home
├─nvme0n1p8  259:8    0   169G  0 part /
├─nvme0n1p9  259:9    0    25G  0 part
├─nvme0n1p11 259:10   0    16G  0 part
└─nvme0n1p12 259:11   0     3M  0 part

I am right now booted into the nvme0n1p8 partition .

nvme0n1p9 is the problem partition  that is giving me the Failed to mount /boot
It is an arch install .
I looked at the /etc/fstab and it looks fine so I don't know the next step to try to find out what the issue is.
I want to say this happened after a upgrade today but I am not 100% sure.  I  don't want to go off in the wrong direction.
I end up at the emergency mode prompt.

Let me know what more info you need to troubleshoot this issue.
Thanks

Re: [SOLVED] cannot boot FAILED Failed to mount /boot

OK I booted into my p8 partition which is a Manjaro partition.

I arch-chroot to the p9 partition and installed the linux-lts kernel

Did an update-grub and was able to boot into the partiton.

So the failed boot entry is still there under advanced and I booted into it.
I did a uname-r and it showed  linux kernel with -MANJARO   at the end of it.

I'm not sure what I did to get that.

Is there a way to replace this kernel with a archlinux kernel which I think it should be?

Re: [SOLVED] cannot boot FAILED Failed to mount /boot

Ok I think I am going to mark this post as [SOLVED] since I can boot to the partition.

I will delete the GRUB entry that doesn't work.

I think my problem was when I updated I had my bootable flash drive in the laptop.
I updated loading the partition from the flash drive and was using the flash drive as the boot drive when it should have been my p2 partition.

Thanks
