I’m flying tomorrow for a training and tonight my laptop won’t boot without warning!
After grub 2 screen, I got the message:
Welcome to emergency mode. Use “systemctl default” or ctrl D to enter default mode
Give root password for login:
I login but then nothing happen.
Thanks for your quick help!
I can login in root with startx only

You have to login, discover in text mode what is the problem, and then
solve the problem. Once you solve the problem you will be able to boot
in normal mode.
You can try running “systemd-journalctl” and find out in that long text
what is wrong.
If you complain that the information is complex and difficult to find,
welcome to the club. This is Bug 782904, and I’m afraid there is no
intention to improve the situation.
You can instead boot in systemv mode (at the grub boot screen), which is
way more helpful when it enters emergency mode.
