Hello i only just updated my system today, and it asked me to restart to finish the install, so I did, but now I’m have to manually start my laptop on emergency mode.
I saw a related topic to mine, but i’m worried it not the same error, and I’m unsure how to fix the issue as I’m a noobie to linux.
here’s the topic I found [Failed] Failed to start File System Check on Root Device
in that topic a user suggested using the systemctl status systemd-fsck-root.service command and the output on my system is:
`[User@user ~]$ systemctl status systemd-fsck-root.service
● systemd-fsck-root.service - File System Check on Root Device

I tried the /etc/mkinitcpio.conf command but was Permission denied
The user helping suggested using ‘’ Boot a live-cd and run fsck. Reboot,’’
But I’m confused on what he meant, as I only have a flash stick, so if I boot from it, it will only want to reinstall manjaro kde, and when when I inputted the fsck command I chickened out, because of its warning messages, so if that topic is the solution, please tell what I have to step by step, thank you
I normally shove my files into my second hard drive for storage reasons, plus I had kde fail to boot before, and it was painful as I lost stuff, luckily reinstalling kde doesn’t effect the second hard drive
