only emergency mode after upgrade to F19

I upgraded to F19 (from F18) using fedup but afterwards Fedora only boots to emergency mode. I can boot my system using the "rescue mode" from grub though (with swap enabled).

dracut-initqueue says: "Warning /dev/mapper/hd-swap does not exist".

In the emergency shell I can see that /dev/mapper is empty (besides a 'control' device). If I run "lvm_scan" in the shell I can see that the swap lv is "inactive".

There is no /etc/fstab in emergency mode, just an /etc/fstab.empty.

How can I get my system up&running again?
