without changing anything (besides from running the appcenter updates regularly) I cannot boot into my system anymore. When booting my laptop I receive the msg "Kernel Panic - Not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root FS on unknown Block (0,0)"

I am using the elementary encryption of my disk.

My current Kernel is 5.4.0-64. I tried to solve the issue by following the instructions on: https://www.geekswarrior.com/2019/07/solved-how-to-fix-kernel-panic-on-linux.html

I am able to boot into Kernel 5.4.0-59.

sudo fdisk -l

gives me:

/dev/sda1  *       2048   1499135   1497088   731M 83 Linux
/dev/sda2       1501182 488396799 486895618 232,2G  5 Erweiterte
/dev/sda5       1501184 488396799 486895616 232,2G 83 Linux

And "df" shows me:

/dev/mapper/elementary--vg-root 237584168 102420484 123025396 46% /

What is my root partition and how can I fix the setup under the current Kernel?
