I'm quite shure you entered the wrong passphrase. The cause of this seems
to be that you have used a different keymap than you are using now. With
other words: the passphrase you enter is the wrong one, although the keys
you press indicate the correct passphrase.

You'll have to find out what keymap you did use as you entered the
passphrase for the first time. If you can't remember, try the most common
ones first: your native language, and the US one. See "man loadkeys" for
how to switch.

This has nothing to do with your problem at all, you can ignore this
warning. It's most likely udev/blkid related.
