I use fedora 20 and it was working find. But since last update it is showing message like this. I cant write exact message. But the message like this.

Welcome to emergency mode.
Use "systemctl default" for default login. Use "Systemectl reboot" for reboot. ....
Control D for continue. 
Give root password for maintenance:

When i do Control + D it is continue with normal process. But every time this message is showing. How can i remove it?

Is it possible to boot the former kernel? You can select this in Grub.

The same thing happened to me, I had to pop in a live USB and then ran fsck.

I just ran fsck on my corrupted drive and the problem is gone, Fedora 20 boots through to the login screen.
