I am guessing that you are using a key file to unlock boot? This saves
you from entering the password to unlock your disc twice (once in grub,
once while booting)? 

I think this is where I am having an issue. I can boot the system by
booting manually at the grub shell:

grub> cryptomount -a
grub> set root='lvm/matrix-root'
grub> linux /boot/vmlinuz-linux-libre-lts root=/dev/matrix/root
grub> initrd /boot/initramfs-linux-libre-lts.img
grub> boot

I am still trying to determine what changed during the last update.
