Here is my fdisk -l and fstab info:

I can enter /dev/sda3 and continue the bootup process. I can't find any info that makes sense on how to correct this.
Thanks

Additional info:

On 1st bootup I received the error and saw that the fstab entry was incorrect. I made the adjustment, changed /dev/sda4 to /dev/sda3 but since received the same error.

h3nnn4n of irc suggested that I re-run boot-update and that fixed the issue.

Thanks
