File system check on every boot

On every boot on the splash screen I get filesystem check in progress press "ctrl + c" to cancel.

I am using xubuntu 20.04. Idk this is xfce specific or not.

I tried these solutions shows here : https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2371540 but no luck.

After checking

journalctl -xb

and searching for keyword "filesystem" I got this

Sep 17 09:40:02 ubuntu-pc kernel: EXT4-fs (sdb7): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)
Sep 17 09:40:04 ubuntu-pc systemd-fsck[656]: fsck.fat 4.1 (2017-01-24)
Sep 17 09:40:04 ubuntu-pc systemd-fsck[656]: /dev/sdb1: 194 files, 33473/98304 clusters
Sep 17 09:40:04 ubuntu-pc systemd[1]: Finished File System Check on /dev/disk/by-uuid/0EAB-704A.
-- Subject: A start job for unit systemd-fsck@dev-disk-by\x2duuid-0EAB\x2d704A.service has finished successfully

is this helpful for understanding or I can provide entire "journalctl log"

Is there any ways to stop it?please help.

Re: File system check on every boot

In "fstab" at the end of each line there are two numerical values: "dump" and "pass"
"dump" defines whether safeguards should be made, and "pass" determines fsck check order: 1-high priority, 2-low priority and 0-no verification.
You have to put 0 for not have verification, I'm not sure but it seems to me that "/" (root) has to have "dump" in 1 necessarily, all the rest can be at 0.
Look for a manual or explanation of "fstab" for be sure.

Re: File system check on every boot

I checked my fstab file. As you suggested & figured it out that my /boot/efi partition was the issue

changed this :

UUID=0EAB-704A  /boot/efi       vfat    umask=0077      0       1

to this :

UUID=0EAB-704A  /boot/efi       vfat    umask=0077      0       0

And that worked. Not getting that file system check message anymore.

Thank You!
