Logging issue in graphics terminal in Ubuntu 20.04 after timeshift setup

us flag

I installed timeshift btrfs type in my Dell laptop with Ubuntu 20.04 for btrfs. After reboot, I see login is not possible in graphics console and so pressing CTRL-ALT-F2 I came to text console and loging was possible. However, after the login, I see that /home and /opt partitions are missing which are listed in /etc/fstab and pwd shows directory /. I could see the partitions using sudo fdisk -l command. The command lsblk was showing for partuuid for those two partitions which was not matching with the uuid mentioned with that at /etc/fstab. The command sudo btrfs subvol list \ shows /home and and /opt as level 5 with IDs and backup entries.

This means those two partitions with timeshifted backups exist and btrfs can see.

I visited snapshots with timeshift, timeshift github, btrfs,askUbuntu on timeshift and more.

I tried to find solutions and now I am asking question. I request to kindly advice me on the procedure to fix the issue so that system can have proper mount instead of just stamping as repeated question with any successful solution.

Can you mount the partitions manually?

Thanks. No, I cannot mount. I can see partitions in ```fdisk```, I can see partitions with backups using ```btrfs subvol``` command as reported in question.

Perhaps you cold show your `/etc/fstab` and output/errors from `lsblk`, `btrfs`, and `mount` commands.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
