Failed kernel modules after upgrading [testing-branch]

Please forgive me if I am asking a question in the wrong thread and not according to the rules. It’s just that this is my first time here, I don’t speak English very well and it’s hard to understand from a cell phone.

I’m on the test branch and after today’s update my machine froze and after forced shutdown I can’t boot into my OS. When I try I get “Failed kernel modules”. I also can’t restart the kernel module in the console.

Please help me to solve this problem. My kernel version: 5.13.19-2

Thank you. ^)

Welcome to the forum!

5.13 is EOL. Please install a newer kernel or an LTS kernel.

If your system is no longer booting, then you’ll have to do it from within a chroot in the live session of the installer CD, DVD or USB. Boot up with that and open a terminal window. Then issue the following commands… :arrow_down:

sudo su -
manjaro-chroot -a
pacman -Syu
mhwd-kernel -i linux514

The above is for kernel 5.14. You may choose/try any kernel you like, except for 5.13. :wink:

Maybe also try to reinitiate an update with pacman -Syu before exiting the chroot (I would even do that as first command when in chroot).

Thank you for your reply.

I ran into a problem when mounting. Running:
mkdir /mnt/test
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/test

And the answer:
unknown filesystem type ‘crypto_LUKS’

Do I have to decrypt it first and how can I do it on the LiveCD?

Thanks :hugs:
