^ This is wrong, an EFI partition should show the ef00 code in gdisk, I am amazed that disk can boot at all in UEFI mode :?

It should be possible to use gdisk to change the partition code but be sure to back up the contents first.

Since we don't know fore sure how it was setup (which package called it as a dep or recommends)
I'd be suspicious of removing it at this point of time, anyways.
Here is more from the lvm debian wiki

I have a few other suggestions for consideration, most importantly (in my opinion) is to double check the upgrade status
Code: Select all
~$ apt list --upgradeable

or compare these two to see if they match
Code: Select all
~$ aptitude -s safe-upgrade

Code: Select all
~$ aptitude -s full-upgrade

the -s option in aptitude is for running in (simulation mode)
so choosing the default Y [ENTER] key just returns to the bash prompt without doing any package management.
Code: Select all
Note: Using 'Simulate' mode.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]

also read the manpages for mkswap and swapon for reference to swap on NFS
as I believe you mentioned having swap NFS in one of the posts above.

best of luck
and very glad you got boot again....
