Ubuntu encryption during installation

ni flag

For the first time while installing Ubuntu 23.04 I clicked the button for encryption. For bad luck the installation got stuck, so now I have an encrypted Lenovo laptop and I can't decrypt mmcblk0 even though I know the passphrase. I have try to decrypt it, but with no result.

Results of lsblk :

Boot from the Ubuntu 23.04 live USB that you used to install Ubuntu, and select the Try Ubuntu option to start an Ubuntu live session. Launch the built-in GParted partition editor, and reformat /dev/sdb as FAT32 in order to remove the LUKS encryption. Then you can reinstall Ubuntu 23.04.

[This answer]( is stronger than GParted, and it also can be run from an Ubuntu live session.

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.
