Manjaro Freezing at Boot Screen


I’m having issues booting my machine and only able to get to the screen prior to the login screen, where it says “Manjaro” at the bottom and there are three status dots that illuminate sequentially as the system boots. It stays at this screen and will not proceed to the user login screen. If I hit the Esc key while at this screen, I see the following:

"/dev/mapper/luks-cdfd8ff4-c22f-4212-8ce0-ad5acd508570: recovering journal
Error reading block 60885539 (input/output error).

/dev/mapper/luks-cdfd8ff4-c22f-4212-8ce0-ad5acd508570: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY (i.e., without -a or -p options)"

My system info is as follows:

Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz CPU
Intel HD GPU
16GB Memory

If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

You will likely have to use your installation media (USB you installed from)
boot from it
open the encrypted container in which the (damaged) filesystem resides
and run fsck on it as advised.

The general procedure:

sudo cryptsetup open /dev/sdaX cryptlvm
sudo fsck /dev/mapper/cryptlvm

The name cryptlvm is arbitrary - it just needs to be the same in both commands.

If you need further help, people here can guide you.

The damaged filesystem might not be recoverable, however - hope for the best, having a backup would be good …
