UUID not found after restoring Timeshift backup

Today my system all of a sudden did not load any more (“file /boot/vmlinuz-5.15-x86_64 not found”).
So I installed the system from a live USB and then restored a recent Timeshift backup. But then this ERROR appeared: “resume: hibernation device ‘UUID=…{for swap}’ not found
ERROR: device ‘UUID=…{for sda1}’ not found. Skipping fsck. mount: /new_root: can’t find UUID=…{for sda1}. You are now being dropped into an emegency shell.”

I updated /etc/fstab and /etc/default/grub with the new UUIDs by accessing the files in the live system with KATE. Even though the update was saved, the same error keeps appearing.

What should I do now?

After editing /etc/default/grub you need always run update-grub. That must be done on a live session within a chroot if you cannot boot the local installation
