And in this new grub.cfg there is an old (previous) value for UUID for my partition with Arch system. Manjaro partition UUID is set correctly. Grepping showes that old UUID is present in the file '/etc/lvm/cache/.cache' with the old info for my previous HDD partitioning. But 'sudo vgscan --cache' didn't change this cache content. I saw this bug is mentioned in the fedora/redhat bugtracker. But they are a conservative distros and bug fixing for them take a time.
