Grub Rescue: error compression type 0x3 not supported

Did a simple update using sudo apt update, followed by sudo apt upgrade. Got the notification that a newer Kernel was available. Hit ok, then Ok. Did a sudo systemctl reboot, thats when it all went down hill. Now i’m stuck in the grub rescue mode and can’t get out of it, following some online steps but it gets struck and gives an error: compression type 0x3 not supported? See pictures for details, any ideas of what to do next?

we do not support apt here

Welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

As @stephane said, apt is not officially supported. Manjaro’s package manager is pacman, or alternatively, pamac. apt as found in the AUR is an experimental port of Debian’s package manager to Arch and Arch derivatives. Do not use it in Manjaro.

That said, the error you’re getting requires a reinstallation of GRUB. Boot up from the Manjaro install medium in live mode, and open up a terminal window. Then issue the following commands… :arrow_down:

sudo su -
manjaro-chroot -a
grub-install --recheck --no-rs-codes --modules="part_msdos part_gpt zstd" 

It should now be safe to reboot.
