After updating to 11.5.1 tonight, I didn't use my 2019 5K iMac any further. I just woke it up from sleep and got an unpleasant surprise.

My Time Machine external drive (just a normal 1TB external drive, no Apple time capsule) has suddenly crashed?! Anyone else having this issue?

It is coming at a particularly bad timing, because i need to bring my iMac to the repair shop because the panel has issues... *sigh*
