Hi to all,

I have a problem with my pc, after the upgrade the system starts and at the time you see the ubuntu logo and the bar on the bottom, a black page appears and says the following things:

One or more of the mounts listed in /etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted:
(ESC for recovery shell)
/: waiting for /dev/disk/by-uuid/9d86cd51-f985-4cb8-b99c-628c328b48a8
/tmp: waiting for (null)
swap: waiting for UUID=c810c88a-48ed-48b3-99a8-aa35251efad1

I asked for an help in the Italian forum, so a user suggest me to check some things and the result is:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$

Can someone please help me to fix this problem?

Thank you.
