I started my computer today and after the BIOS boot logo nothing showed up. Usually Plymouth's disk decryption screen shows up as my SSD is encrypted. I legit thought something had broken my computer and even updated my BIOS. Still, nothing, just a black screen.
Then I checked Reddit's /r/Pop_OS and many users have had [the](https://libreddit.kavin.rocks/r/pop_os/comments/xk00n7/stuck_here_after_update_did_system_updates/) same [problem](https://libreddit.kavin.rocks/r/pop_os/comments/xk00n7/stuck_here_after_update_did_system_updates/). Apparently the latest system update has broken Plymouth, so after the BIOS logo one has to input the decryption password blindly. And BAM – then the Pop OS desktop shows up! I'm telling this here in case anyone else uses Pop OS. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
