So I made the rookie mistake of powering off my machine when it was updating under the assumption it was hung up. I went to reboot and it had issues with both my active kernel 5.10 and the fallback.
I created a live iso and booted into that. Here’s what I’ve done:
mhwd-kernel -r linux510
Removed no problem after removing the db.lck file.
mhwd-kernel -i linux510
I get the error “no targets specified”. After browsing the forums, I’ve tried the following without success:
Updated no problem, it even stated that the kernel had been updated.
Lists no kernels installed.
Gives two error messages saying “specified kernel image does not exist” for 5.10 and 5.10 fallback.
grub-install --recheck --no-rs-codes
Error message saying install device isn’t specified.
No idea where to go from here. Is this salvageable?

pacman-mirrors -f 5 && pacman -Syyu
if there were no errors and you are up to date, reinstall the kernel:
pacman -S linux510
if you have nvidia, reinstall the kernel module too:
pacman -S linux510-nvidia
if there were no errors, exit chroot and reboot

pacman -S linux510
This solved it, thank you! Why does pacman work and not mwhd-kernel in this instance?
