I have an old Dell Inspiron 3542. Yesterday morning during the routine boot, it did not boot well. Got the message:
You are in emergency mode. After logging in type "journal -xb" to view system logs, "systemctl reboot" to reboot, "systemctl default" or "exit" to boot into default mode.
Give root password for maintenance
(or press Control-D to continue):
After performing the above recommended actions, the same message appeared. I even reinstalled Leap-15.3 twice, with proper downloading of the list of repositories and their packages. But the situation remained the same.
Windows 10 dual booting on the same computer is working perfectly. I checked up the health of the Hard Disk on the Windows. It showed all partitions on the disk as “Healthy”.
Thanks for the quick response.
The last thing that I did was to open Firefox browser. It did not open but message was displayed: “Firefox is running but is not responding…”. I rebooted and then this “emergency” occurred.
I did try to boot with “Advanced Boot option” of Grub but the same “emergency” message was shown. I did see the system log but could not make out any sense of it.
I do take your advice on Leap 15.4; but it can happen only when my system becomes functional.
