Are we only talking about error messages at boot but everything works afterwards ?

Apparently the "Namespace lookup failure" has been known for a while now
https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/10/5/299
and
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1584407
but doesn't seem to cause any adverse effects.

It may be that that the Ubuntu kernel devs (or something in the mesa version we're using) are simply suppressing the messages at boot .. but they're likely still in the logs.

System boots only from recovery mode after launching 'clean'. That's what 'clean' says before launching:

Continuing will remount your / filesystem in read/write mode and mount any other filesystem defined in /etc/fstab.

Are you up for an experiment ?

I must point out there are risks attached .. probably small ones, but present all the same .. so you should be in the frame of mind where you'd be okay with a reinstall if things go wrong.

Yes! It's good until only OS partition is affected and it won't damage the hardware. I can backup important data to HDD, then try out doing what's needed.

Okay boot however you can ..

Now go to

Menu > Preferences > Software & Updates .. and select the "Other Software" tab

On that tab, remove any ticks from boxes that start with
http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos
but make a note of which ones you're unticking.

Once NO repo that starts with
http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos
is ticked, click the "Close" button .. then the "Reload" button when prompted.

When it closes, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
update-usbids
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Now REBOOT to test

Once rebooted go to

Menu > Preferences > Software & Updates .. and select the "Other Software" tab

On that tab, add back any ticks you removed earlier.

Click the "Close" button .. then the "Reload" button when prompted.

Now post the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
