I have the following btrfs subvolumes on  my btrfs boot partition:

ID 343 gen 285 top level 257 path @boot-snapshot/67/snapshot
ID 344 gen 290 top level 257 path @boot-snapshot/68/snapshot

When I try to boot I get into the Minimal Bash shell. Apparently the
Kubuntu grub-mkconfig generates a grub.cfg which contains a call to the
search command in order to set the prefix environment variable. But as far

And what is this search command?

Also show output of

lsblk -f

from your operating system where grub.cfg is generated.

as I understand it doesn't take into account the btrfs subvolumes. The prefix
environment variable has the value of (hd0,gpt2)/grub right after dropping
into Minimal bash, and if i manually set the prefix to (hd0,gpt2)/@boot/grub
instead and execute normal, the system boots successfully. What seems
strange to me is that the calls to linux and initrd do in fact detect (and
set) the @boot btrfs subvolume.

I do not understand what it means. What exactly "initrd detects and sets @boot" means?

See this screenshot too:
I am also sending my grub.cfg file attached.

I hope that you'll be able to help me find a solution to this issue.
