After new Update, I'm getting error when I try to unlock my disk:

Warning: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to device scanning.
Volume group "ubuntu-vg" not found
Cannot process volume group ubuntu-vg
Please unlock disk sda3_crypt HERE I HIT PASSWORD

cryptsetup: cryptsetup failed, bad password or options? 

After long search on forums, I supposed it's problem with keyboard layout, probably when I installed ubuntu I wrote password with UK layout and now after Update, layout was changed to US and I don't know how can I change to UK, maybe there are some commands in GRUB2.

  • When you say English layout do you mean UK layout? If so, there's only one major difference from the US layout, the @ and the ' sign are reversed. – To Do Jul 12 at 16:33
  • @ToDo if it so, can I reinstall ubuntu again from scratch if disk is encrypted ? – Radeanu Vasile Jul 12 at 16:40
  • You can, but you'll loose the contents of the encrypted partition if you are not cautious (!). – Tomáš Pospíšek Jul 12 at 19:18
  • Also, if your /boot partition is not encrypted, then you should be able to change your keyboard layout from the grub CLI. See here for a starter: askubuntu.com/questions/751259/… – Tomáš Pospíšek Jul 12 at 19:19
