Strange boot errors (but laptop works!)

Hey guys… I am a bit new to Manjaro but not so new to Linux.
I have a jumper ezbook 3 pro (https://www.gearbest.com/laptops/pp_620750.html) which is actually a decent, a very decent machine for the cost.
I immediately deleted windows and after that I installed a m.2. ssd 120 gb and I installed Manjaro on the internal emmc, using rEFInd to boot it.
However … since the first boot I get strange errors, which I cannot understand and solve.
The laptop, never the less, works fine … extremely fine … I am completely satisfied. However I am reluctant to install it on the m.2 ssd because of these boot errors.

journalctl -b
gives me these errors

So…any ideas???
Any suggestions???

Kind regards and thanks in advance

Can you post output of smartctl -a /dev/sda please?

To me that looks like a hardware problem, either the drive is faulty or the connection to the drive.

I’m not an expert though.
Is your M.2 firmly inserted in the slot?

that came to my mind first.
So I opened it up and reinserted the ssd . I cannot insert it more firmly. … I tied it down with tape just to be more sure. I cannot use the screw since the slot is for a 2242 and i moddedit (removed a plastic bracket) to fit a 2280

What you can try to do is to boot with the kernel boot parameters
libata.force=noncq libata.dma=0
I don’t think it will help, but who knows…

No change at all …
