Storage issue with 5.10 Kernel

Hello Manjaro Community,

This is my first post here and I am by no means an expert. Actually I would like to learn how to tackle the issue I’m having here and that might arise in the future.

Background: I’ve been delighted by the ease of switching kernels in Manjaro and used it whenever I encountered some issue with a package. Instead of rolling back or fixing old issues, I went ahead and jumped to the next kernel. This started in 4.19, continued in 5.4 and made me update to 5.10 a few weeks back.
Since then I experienced weird behavior of my machine; namely the file system usage:

  • after hibernation it wasn’t possible to access the fs anymore (IOError when calling poweroff in the
    terminal). Rebooting fixed this.
  • Not being able to boot the system anymore (screen goes black after booting, when shutting the system down via the power button, I can shorty see that there was some issue with the filesystem). Booting into Kernel version 4 “fixed” this. However I’d prefer to be able to use the newest Kernel.

So what to look for first?
