this is a direct hint that your boot root arg got renamed
(and no there is exist no stable names, better use uuid)
how about if you boot with root=/dev/sda5 for the newer kernel?
and you'd need also to fix up your fstab
for stable uuid see for example

funny that you retype the direct error message hint,
but don't try it out?
