Cannot login into my session through gdm

My system was working just fine last night. I updated it and now I can't log into my session. All I see is a black screen with this at the very top left of my screen _

Here is my journalctl log showing the booting process:

Help would greatly appreciate it as I am close to finals of my term and all my stuff such as ardour and ffmpeg is on there WITH my files for my project.
If you need more info, please tell me. I really need this system to boot again

I'll provide what I think might be useful:

I dig some more digging around and apparently my root isn't being found? I just looked at my fstab file and the UUID's match:
This is probably because I have my arch linux installation inside a systemd container right now.

Here's my grub configurations:

Here's my mkinitcpio.conf:

Here's all the packages I have installed:

NOTE: I am planning on moving over to sway after my term is over. All I am seeking is getting my system to work permanently.

I did in fact accidentally moved everything from /usr/lib/* to /usr/lib/local
I did this by using the mv command. I was trying to move stuff from the local in which there was stuff in the local/lib into the /usr/lib. I had them backwards. I was able to "fix" it by moving everything back into that folder and reinstalling the packages. I don't know if this is useful or not as I really don't know if it did really fix my problem as I am right back at square one. I googled some of those errors and could it be that something isn't stable?

Here's something that is making my gdm start and stop nonstop:

Re: Cannot login into my session through gdm

Hard to tell if this system can be restored to working state, but there are things that can be tried.

append to the boot command.

If that works you'll get to a console login where you  can login as root.
focus on saving/backupping your important user files.

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

(A works at time B)  && (time C > time B ) ≠  (A works at time C)
