Description:
I wanted to upgrade my system. After I ran the command "pacman -Syu", I saw that among those packages was the new Linux kernel (5.12.1). I decided to install this package along with the others and then reboot the system after that. After rebooting I found that the system didn't boot properly. GRUB shows up as usual but after I select Arch Linux the system boots but after two lines in the console about my disk sectors nothing else happens. Logically the system should have started the SDDM but this does not happen and the driver does not output a full resolution picture (1920*1080). After a little research on the Arch Wiki, I decided to log in with Ctrl-Alt-F2 and to check the logging with journalctl (see attached photo).

List of these errors:

ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve symbol [\_SB.PCI0.SAT0.PRT2._GTF.DSSP], AE_NOT_FOUND (20210105/psargs-330)
ACPI Error: Aborting method \_SB.PCI0.SAT0.PRT2._GTF due to previous error (AE_NOT_FOUND) (20210105/psparse-529)

ldm_parse_tocblock(): Cannnot find TOCBLOCK, database may be corrupt.

sd 6:0:0:0: [sdd] No Caching mode page found
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdd] Assuming drive cache: write through

I tried to solve this problem by rolling back the kernel, flashing the BIOS, but the problem still persists.
This task depends upon

Had similar issue today.

After running pacman -Syu that resulted in upgraded kernel to 5.12.1 the system did 'hang' during boot. "journalctl -xb" shows simial (but different) bios errors like:

archlinux kernel: ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Failure creating named object [\_SB.PCI0.XHC.RHUB.SS06._UPC], AE_ALREADY_EXISTS (20201113/dswload2-326)

Solved by downgrading kernel:
- start live cd
- cryptsetup open </dev/main_partition> a_name
- mount /dev/mapper/a_name /mnt
- mount </dev/boot_partition> /mnt/boot # took me a while to find out this was needed!
- arch-chroot /mnt
- cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg
- pacman -U linux-5.11.16.arch1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

My system seems to be operating normally but I also received similar errors at boot after uupdating:

Nope, my laptop is not working correctly. The function key is locked default ON instead of OFF, so the laptop function for F1 are the default instead of F1! I didn't notice at first because I normally use a USB keyboard.

EDIT: Well, LTS kernel didn't get the errors but my keyboard was still not working correctly so maybe the keyboard issues is not related.
EDIT2: I had Num Lock on! 🤦

I'm having the same problem and I did provided my acpidump files at https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=213023

Update: there's a patch coming to 5.13 kernel and this will probably be applied to the 5.12 kernel later.
I'm using the linux-zen kernel which does have the ACPI problems like the linux package, but never freezes my entire system while doing random stuff with my brand new 1080p laptop display from LG, like the LTS kernel.
