luks partition unreachable (initramfs)

Postby danass » 2017-02-17 12:43

Hello!
i made a debian install with one luks partition on a usb key.
Last time i booted I made a dist-upgrade and after that i couldnt boot anymore.

I have now a proposition with two kernel versions in my grub.

None of them will boot:
I get the message timeout reached while waiting for askpass
Then i get an invite :
(initramfs)

But i have no access either to network, either to cryptsetup.
There is not crypttab file.
I also get a failure message when trying to connect to lvmetad.

Blkid command give me a list where i can see the crypt_LUKS partition.
Ive seen this tutorial which seem great viewtopic.php?f=16&t=131273&p=634538&hilit=luks#p634538
But i have no access to many of the commands that are needed...

Can someone give me some help to fix this?

Thank you!

No I can't, but maybe some more info about your partition layout will help. Let people know how you setup the LUKS, post fdisk, and it looks like you tried to upgrade to stretch?

I made a dist-upgrade and after that i couldnt boot anymore.
