This is a 4.1GB upgrade since the last upgrade which was in 10 december 2021. There are a few irrelevant packages that could not be upgraded. Now, after booting, Manjaro puts me in tty1 (and I checked all the ttys available through the F-keys) and on a login prompt I can log in using my username and password. I did a pacman -Syyu and rebooted and still, after logging in, it tells me that
Cannot open display “default display”
Please advice. I want to be able to login into GNOME.
Actually we had 6 updates since 2021/12/10. You should first check each announcement, see if anything is relevant to your system.
Strong of its many members, the Manjaro support forum can provide you help whenever you have an issue with your Manjaro installation. But in order to work efficiently, we shall also ask you to follow a few major points.
Simply signaling an issue is rarely enough to understand how it occurred. It is thus important to provide details on how it happened:
Detail prior actions leading to the issue.
Provide any related error messages.

I’ve taken a look on the updates but I did not see anything interesting.
What commands can I use to login into GNOME from this prompt?
If I type
gnome-shell and press Return it tells me:
Failed to configure: Unsupported session type^J
Started gdm service manually and it works. When I try to enable gdm service in GNOME Terminal I get:
$ sudo systemctl enable gdm.service
Failed to enable unit: File /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service already exists and is a symlink to /usr/lib/systemd/system/gdm-plymouth.service.
I am wondering what is the solution to this, so that I have GDM start automatically on startup.
Check the tutorial i linked earlier in order to provide meaningful information.
At some point you enabled plymouth. To disable, disable the unit.
systemctl disable gdm-plymouth
And then enable the gdm.service as you tried before.
(Removing Plymouth might need additional steps which I don’t know.)
gdm-plymouth you have to do what i described here
Here are a few things i would do:
when unsure, i disconnect the HDDs that i do not want the installer to mix with and i keep only the SSD or HDD that i want to install on
check the available BIOS update, and your motherbord seems to have an update

also the early KMS thing …

Unit gdm-plymouth.service could not be found.
@bogdancovaciu 's solution works.
The result will be the same…
I did with

The plymouth package is not installed.
I just installed this normal gdm:
sudo pacman -S gdm (it was not installed previously).
/etc/mkinitcpio.conf there is no
I wonder what the
gdm package does since I already have started the gdm.service through
sudo systemctl start gdm and I am using GNOME.
$ sudo mkinitcpio -P
with a few warnings.
I am wondering if these steps are enough to restart the system successfully.
I would not go by -R, but simply replace
sudo pacman -Syyu libgdm gdm
should replace both without breaking dependencies … just confirm the install when asked.
After doing this I tried
sudo systemctl enable gdm and it worked (I have checked the behaviour). Just one more thing: I am wondering why the boot graphics are not there. I like it more this way since I can see those green
[ OK ] shown before the login screen shows up and I think this is helpful in case of errors, but why are they not hidden by a HP logo just like until that point in the boot process?
Because that was done by
