systemd: /usr/share/factory/etc/vconsole.conf exists in filesystem
Unfortunately, this might be due to the fact that I’m currently in live USB boot and running the command in chroot. How can I fix this? Or is it easier to simply re-install Manjaro (I’m on a dual boot system)?
Should it be relevant how I got stuck in live boot:
This is due to a series of (as I now recognize) very stupid mistakes: I found the post with the fix for the glibc-locales problem after I had already temporarily moved the directory “locales”. That made it possible to start the update process, but due to the missing files it got interupted (unfortunately I don’t have the exact error messages anymore). This also broke, well, a lot of stuff (I could still start programs using the command line, but not the GUI). I then tried to copy the “locales”-files back, which worked, but didn’t fix any problems. I then tried to reboot, but, unsurprisingly, I couldn’t load the kernel. Yes, I’m a noob.
As long as you have the hang on how and what partitions to create, you can follow that. (correct flags, mount location etc)
I think there are better tutorials on the forum though, try searching for a [HowTo] post about setting up dual boot.
Also, I encourage you to think about using btrfs, timeshift works really well with that. ^^
Also, if you still have your home available, and it is a separate partition, you don’t need to remove it but rather just set that partition as home and your old settings will follow your re-installation.
Looks like Wollie was correct, I somewhere along the way messed something else up because if I try this I get
error: extract: not overwriting dir with file /usr/local/share/man
error: problem occurred while upgrading filesystem
error: could not commit transaction
error: failed to commit transaction (transaction aborted)
Thank you all for your replies, I’ll simply try to reinstall, I think it’s easier on the whole in my case.
