Grub replaced by Grub-fedora?

During an update, grub was replaced with grub-fedora 2.03.62-f29-4
Is it a mistake, or is everything as it should be?

I doubt Manjaro update forced replace Grub. Check your Pacman logs and see what happened.

You should always post the full text including the command you typed, not parts of it, including the contents of 40_custom according to your output [ALPM] warning: /etc/grub.d/40_custom saved as /etc/grub.d/40_custom.pacsave :slight_smile: . Why did it need to create a new custom file? Have you (or a program) altered something there?
By what you 've posted one can only assume that you 've previously tried to remove a package related to grub-customizer or you have tinkered around with it or with other packages leading to this result.

40_custom is probably part of grub customizer and it created a pacsave on removal.

I guess the user replaced himself grub with grub-fedora, and it removed grub-customizer and grub. My guess.

What command lead to this? Check your bash history file then.

Why do we even have grub-fedora in our repo in the first place? It’s not pulled from Arch, someone in Manjaro is maintaining it.

That being said… grub-customizer causes more issues than help.

Yes I boot Clonezilla.  I have now rolled back one day with Clonezilla and now everything is working as it should .Thanks for your help
