I'll post what I can about my system but it's not entirely accurate since I'm getting information via a live usb and using chroot:

This started after trying linux414. I was running linux47 which has EOL status, but was working with the least number of issues in the journal log.
Now, I can't boot using any kernel.
I did remove linux414, from the live environment thinking a grub rebuild would help. It didn't.
Here is the error, prior to any attempts at fixing it - chrooting etc.:
(Sorry about the image. I don't know how to get this information in text format.)
I've been researching this for days, and am now going in circles.
I'm hoping the great community here can help resolve this so I don't have to start fresh.
If there is a way to pull Home, and /etc for config files off the machine, I'd be more open reinstalling.
I was also in the process of trying to setup Amanda for backup - didn't get there.
