While trying to shutdown my system, systemd displays an error which says "systemd: stopped (with error)  /dev/mapper/crypt-boot". 'crypt-boot' is the device mapper name for the encrypted boot partition. Could someone explain this. Do I need to be concerned of any data loss in the boot partition?

As you are shutting down, the filesystem becomes unreadable for the 
systemd process, you need to add the shutdown hook to mkinitcpio  in 
order to have a copy of the initramfs at shutdown time.
