This achievement is MISSABLE. However, it has been claimed by some that any you miss on your first playthrough can be solved on New Game+ and the achievement will unlock when you've accumulated 20 total. I can't verify this though so if you missed the cheevo on your first playthough I would advise solving all of them on NG+ until it unlocks (not just the ones you think you needed to get 20 on your first run).
This is the count:
Total: 22 Missable: 6
There is one MISSABLE puzzle in the main vault of each planet except for H-047C (which has no vault).

Even though the acheivement itself does not progress, you can check this in-game. Go to Menu - Skills - Press cn_Y - Select Accomplishments - Scroll to the bottom. (credit: elKamikazeSquid)
Some players have reported that certain puzzles haven't been counting for them. I would advise saving before completing each puzzle and then checking the in-game tracker afterwords to make sure it counted. If not, reload and try it again. Also, there's debate about whether using Remnant Keys will count or not so I would also advise not using them.

PowerPyx has put together a great guide for locations/solutions of Remnant Puzzles. All credit is his.
