    I have Ubuntu 20 installed in my system. Whenever I am trying to boot, it is getting stuck in busy box prompting:

    Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. 
    (initramfs)

    I’ve faced this issue numerous times. What helps me is fsck/dev/sdax command.

    (initramfs) fsck /dev/sdaX -y

    The -y is for automatically accepting the procedures. If you want to manually do it, you can skip the -y and you’ll have to type y everytime the terminal asks for your permission.

      Sometimes sdaX does not work. In such cases, it is advisable that you try to fix through one disks at a time:

      (initramfs) fsck /dev/sda1 -y

      if not sda1, you can continue with sda2, sda3, so on till you see that terminal is fixing the errors.
