I am not an expert in all things too technical, that is why I post on the Newbie Corner. Yesterday, I wanted to install a new feature using AUR on my Manjaro partition. Since it had to do some other update I decided to let it do the updates first. However, it encountered some problems (if I recall correctly) linked to pacman mirrors. The error was something like:
failed retrieving file 'core.db' from mirror.catn.com. As my work day was over I decided to look into that problem today.
However, this morning, as I tried to do those updates again, the computer crashed and I got a Gnome white screen with a message as in the title: "Oh no! Something has gone wrong." and a prompt to log out of my session. I did so and the same message appeared with a subtitle " A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please contact a system administrator. I could not log in again and thus not access my desktop.
I quickly took a look online, and I decided to use the tty terminal to access Manjaro and to do the update again. I logged myself in, did a
pacman -Syyu, and it did the same errors as the day before that is with the mirrors. A look online gave me a fix and the update finished with quote "nothing to do". However, the problem of the white screen persisted.
As suggested on here I decided to take a look at the logs with
journalctl more specifically
journalctl -p4, which gave me the following output some errors like:
systemd: gnome-shell-x11.service: Main process exited, code=dumped, status=5/TRAP
systemd: gnome-shell-x11.service: Failed with result 'core-dump'
systemd: Failed to start GNOME Shell on X11.
systemd: Dependency failed for GNOME Shell on X11.
systemd: Dependency failed for GNOME X11 Session.
systemd: Dependency failed for GNOME X11 Session (session: gnome).
systemd: gnome-shell-x11.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
systemd-coredump: Process 1601 (gnome-shell) of user 1000 dumped core.
and later it output the same first 7 lines followed then by :
gnome-shell: clutter_input_device_get_device_type: assertion 'CLUTTER_IS_INPUT_DEVICE (device)' failed
followed again by a coredump.
Also tried to check the hardware with
dmesg, but it didn't give any errors.
It is also suggested on here when asking a question to provide
inxi -Fxxxza --no-host, so here you go (sorry for the fact that is a picture of my screen but as I do not have access to a desktop this was the best I could do...) :
Does someone have an idea what the problem is and why I cannot access my desktop ? How can I fix the issue ?
I am sorry if there were any English mistakes, it is only my second language. Also sorry again for the pictures.
Thanks in advance.
