problem in linux 4.18.8.artix1-1 package

I've upgraded my system and the kernel 4.18.8.artix1-1 has been installed. I've rebooted my pc and now I can't enter my luks password. On the screen there is:
Code: [Select]
:: running early hook [udev]
:: running hook [udev]
calling: trigger
calling: trigger
calling: settle

So, I've booted  from a usb disk, I've entered my luks partition and I've installed /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux-4.18.4.artix1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
Now I've rebooted and everything works fine. I've only installed the old kernel and I've changed nothing else, so there is a problem with linux-4.18.8.artix1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

That is very odd. I have an LVM+LUKS setup on the latest artix kernel without any problems. The difference is that I use a keyfile instead of entering a password, but I don't see why that would really matter. I know this is a lame question, but are you totally certain that mkinitcpio built initramfs correctly? It's happened to me before where mkinitcpio randomly failed (I wasn't paying attention and didn't notice it until I checked the logs later) and thus messed up my encryption. I just ran it again later and it was fine.

Thanks for your reply!
I've reinstalled latest (4.18.8)  kernel package,  mkinitcpio has built initramfs correctly but after rebooting, there is the same problem...

If I wait 60 seconds, there are other messages.

Then I've reinstalled the old kernel (4.18.4) and  the boot is ok.
