Switched on this morning.
Can get into /devsda4 (root)

But as systemd starts doing it's stuff,
dropped to emergency shell.

Both /dev/sda3 (swap), /dev/sdb2 (home)
"invalid password"

They are unlocked with a keyfile at /root/keyfile.
pointed to in /etc/crypttab

Now have tried: (twice, same result)
dd =if=/dev/urandom of=/root/newkey
cryptsetup luksAddKey /dev/sdb2 /root/newkey
Enter any Password: made one up
"No key with this paraphrase"
