Failed to start Terminate Plymouth Boot Screen

I lately getting this message from time to time shown in my journalctl after each boot… It also seems like this is causing to make the Boot-Process slower. I have no clue where to look what is causing it. Any Idea? It seems like it started when i replaced my Old Screen with a new one but i’m not sure.

Here’s what the ArchWiki has to say about Plymouth, if that’s useful.

Failing that, you will need to provide more context.
Here are some useful guides which will assist to more effectively get help:

Plymouth is the boot splash things before KDE/SDDM 's own splash screen.

You can remove and disable it if you like … its nothing but bloat.

(that would entail uninstalling the package[s], removing the plymouth entries in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and then running sudo mkinitcpio -P && sudo update-grub)

EDIT.
Oh yeah, I forgot there would also be splash in /etc/default/grub … this should similarly be removed before running sudo update-grub.
Note: this can be replaced with quiet if you are aiming for a more ‘silent boot’.
