Re: Busy Box built inshell(ash) (initramfs)

If you have an older kernel that was working then try booting to that one instead of the latest.

You should also set the linux partition for periodic checks with sudo tune2fs -c35 /dev/sda2

Does it now boot with secure boot disabled :?:

See this for UEFI problem https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2380700

You might have to disable secure boot in the BIOS setup.

Re: Password on startup

Cinnamon might be a little different, but there should be a Login Window menu entry.

From there you can uncheck autologin :wink:

You should always be able to press and hold down the right-shift key when booting to get the grub menu.

Glad to see that you got things straightened out :wink:

Re: How to copy today's file to remote host .

rsync would be the better method, but if you want to go with find then find ~/script -type f -newermt "2018-08-02" -exec scp '{}' username@ip_address:~/script/ \; will do it :wink:
