gorgeous added a comment to T792: Librem15v3: Boot failed after PureOS 8 update >> Cannot open access to console, root account is locked >> Press any key loop.

After I installed PureOS 9 for the 4th time, but this time without encrypted HOME partition, there were no problems after the update of packages and I didn't receive any warnings of wrong keyboard layout so far. So, the it seems that the problem appears when encryption during partitioning comes in place.

No, unfortunately not! I just installed the latest ISO with PureOS 9 from a USB flash drive, and it even gets worse! I mean, as long as the installation process is done, and after the reboot, 5 minutes later I get the notification there are system updates available. Whether I do these updates or I follow the instructions above and do it from the terminal with "sudo apt full-upgrade", after the next reboot I get the same error from the photos I've posted here earlier.
I guess the problem is connected to these 2 facts:

  1. During the setup I set up my home partition to be encrypted (LUKS) with a password.
  2. There may be really a problem with my keyboard layout, but I have no damn idea why, because: I'm using Librem15v3 - so you know what type of keyboard there is and I don't change the default settings during the installation process: the system language is English "unspecified" and the keyboard layout is US. After installation, when I do the system account setting, I choose again the default US layout and US English as environment locals (although as Bulgarian, living in Bulgaria I should later install my BG environment).

But that's the situation right now, and I can reproduce is to you. In the last 2 hours, it happens already 3 times in a row... :(

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T845: Removing the Problem Reporting section from the Privacy panel in the initial setup.

There is a certain amount of professionalism having this as a option - I believe it shows that we want to fix issues and that we're open about the issues we have. This can be empowering for users, most of whom come from closed, proprietary worlds where they never see the data that the send to nor see their issues fixed in a timely manner. At the same time, I agree with Francois that this may appear to be an invasion of privacy even if you can turn it off. The reason is that users don't know clearly what information is gathered and how. "Reports" are sent on "technical problems". I feel this is very vague and I imagine most people will turn it off, so my preference is to have this turned off by default and perhaps not part of the initial setup. If a user reports issues we can ask them to turn it on. Also, where does the collected information show up?
