Can't boot after cloning sd card

I’m running Manjaro (Manjaro-ARM-xfce-rpi4-20.12.1) on a raspberry pi 3B+. Everything runs smoothly on the original sd card. I just cloned the original card to a backup card using rpi-clone and part way through booting on the new backup sd card, I got this message:

ERROR: device ‘LABEL=ROOT_MNJRO’ not found. Skipping fsck.
:: mounting ‘LABEL=ROOT_MNJRO’ on real root
mount: /new_root: can’t find LABEL=ROOT_MNJRO.
You are now being dropped into an emergency shell.
sh: can’t access tty: job control turned off

don’t know where to go from here…

Never used rpi-clone. After looking over it’s examples and command line switches if you wound up with 2 partitions on your cloned sdcard and an ext4 partition as root then I would say you need to make sure the partitions has labels and if they do not give them labels.

Boot partition: BOOT_MNJRO
Root partion: ROOT_MNJRO
