I've installed arch on my system multiple times and everything has worked fine, but since last installation I've been seeing messages : Failed unmounting /home. and Failed unmounting /run/user/1000. during shutdown or reboot procedure. I've searched arch forums for similar threads and found nothing to solve this problem despite multiple conversations on this topic.

Here is journalctl -p 0..3 -xn output:

Here is cat /etc/fstab output:

and here is lsblk output:

I've no idea what these messages mean or otherwise I would've definitely searched about it more. Thankyou.

  • Although this is not a solution for your problem, I wanted to inform you that there are several other people (including me) experiencing this or a similar issue. Here's a link to the thread in the Archlinux forums, and another somewhat similar issue – duelle Aug 9 '15 at 19:24
  • You can add debug kernel parameter to your kernel line and check if journalctl returns more specific log. Alternatively you can set temporary alias in ~/.bash_aliases: alias umount='umount -v'. If either of two ways produces more log messages, then post them. – patryk.beza Aug 13 '15 at 0:06
