File system not displaying; Filesystem root and root partitions displaying on desktop

Just came back from of travel and booted my PC and cannot seem to access filesystem. Two partitions, efi and filesystem root show in the dock but the neither standard file explorer nor any desktop icons appear.

When opening the partition I get an “Could not scan some of the folders contained in ‘/’ ” and “Could not scan folder ‘/boot/efi’ ” error

Any way out besides a fresh install?
