I just tried to update. During the update, my screen went black. Tty didnt work; my system appeared unresponsive and after about 5 minutes of hoping it would magically fix itself I tried a hard reboot.
Now I get the grub menu, but it tells me that none of the kernals I have listed work. For example,
‘/boot/vmlibuz-5.8-x86_64’ not found
I tried chroot, following this guide, but it tells me the kernels are already there.
So now I think I may be better off doing a re-installation, but I really need to save my user files (documents, photos, etc.). Can someone please tell me (or direct me to where I can find) how to extract my documents file and save using chroot or some other method when I cannot boot successfully? I tried a search, but have not been able to find that info.
