Post update: fsck.ext3 : No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/dm-2

After a massive update including grub (not the problem) I cannot mount and boot because of the dubject error message.

/root (dm-0) and swap (dm-1) are ok its just /home (dm-2) that appears broken.

Sorry for the images.

Here is a photo of the errors

and here is my fstab file.

Any ideas, I am at a loss.

Turns out the fstab just needing editing, the dm-0,-1,-2 entries did look strange as could not remember calleing the system dm. Well under the fstab file was another called: fstab-disk-manager-save

They contained more familiar names, so I just editoed those back into fstab, did a mount -a and CTRL D and all was ok
