Check out this thread:

I solved my issue by myself. Thank you all!
Solution is to run the update manually from the check update icon on the taskbar and uncheck a couple packages as shown on the screenshot bellow, in case the image did not load.

manjaro-gnome-extension-settings-17.0
manjaro-gnome-settings-17.0

Then commit and allow the update/upgrade to finish!
Restart your computer and done!

I highly suggest you allow login automatically without password before using this fix to avoid any possible problem later on when you restart.

Hope this helps other people having the same problem.
