Failed Manjaro update - Will this work?


Try to ping see if networking is working!

If so, proceed with sudo pacman -Syyu && mkinitcpio -P && grup-mkconfig !

Fun tip: if you want to enter your account, type in su - [YOUR USERNAME]

Not working yet, but thank you! This is my first effort at this and although I don’t know the commands I can see a pattern.

Here’s the result of the ping: [manjaro /]# ping
ping: Name or service not known

Is it weird that I don’t seem to communicate?

Hm, could you please cat /etc/resolv.conf please?

Thank you!

Is my VPN getting in the way? I didn’t know it was active on the live usb?

manjaro /]# cat /etc/resolv.conf

Generated by expressvpn

search expressvpn
[manjaro /]#

Oh, that is why! That is a DNS to be used only with expressVPN!

Okay, type in sudo chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf

Then type exit

Once back in the live session ([manjaro /] will return to [manjaro ~]), type in cp /etc/resolv.conf /1/etc and answer yes when prompted!

Then go back in your system by re-executing chroot /1 !


When I synced Firefox it loaded VPN.

[manjaro ~]# /etc/resolv.conf /1/etc
-bash: /etc/resolv.conf: Permission denied

Should I turn off VPN?

oh, you forgot the cp :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

cp /etc/resolv.conf /1/etc

No need to turn of the VPN!

[manjaro ~]# cp /etc/resolv.conf /1/etc
cp: not writing through dangling symlink ‘/1/etc/resolv.conf’

I am not leaving until your problem is fixed!

Okay, chroot back in chroot /1

then rm -f /etc/resolv.conf , followed by exit , then try to cp /etc/resolv.conf /1/etc once again.

either way if it worked or not, chroot /1 back in, we will follow up.

Try to ping !

I’m west of Cape Canaveral, Florida. Hope you’re not in Europe it would be late there. :blush:

Ping is working!


Execute sudo pacman -Syyu && mkinitcpio -P && grup-mkconfig and cross your fingers!!

Still pinging should I wait or do enter?

oh, hit ctrl + c to cancel the ping!
