Mysterious supervisor

Hi All,
lately I can’t update my system. Whenever I do I get the message:

[FAILED] Failed to start Myst Supervisor

. I have no idea what this package is about, can’t find anything closely related in the forums or anywhere else. Searching on my system I can’t find it!
It’s driving me nuts and hate that I can’t update my system.

Anybody any idea where to search for this?

Kind regards,


Welcome to the forum! :wave:

I spent two seconds searching the web for that error message. Apparently it’s related to Mysterium VPN. Did you install mysterium-vpn-desktop-bin from the AUR?

That is what I found too. But I don’t have this installed and if I search my system for the other files in that package, they are also not present. Also when i check Pamac it shows as uninstalled.

Given your description, I might guess its a hook. To see current hooks:

ls /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/

Do you have any failed services?

systemctl list-units --failed
systemctl --user list-units --failed

No I hadn’t, and it shows up! But can this be because I just installed it and uninstalled it?
I get this output:

systemctl list-units --failed
● myst_supervisor.service loaded failed failed Myst Supervisor

● app-\x2fusr\x2fbin\x2fpamac\x2dtray\x2dplasma-d867fafe41d346318e5f3f08f48a520a.scope loaded failed failed /usr/bin/pamac-tray-plasma

If you didn’t disable the service before uninstalling and hadn’t rebooted yet, the service symlink is still in /etc/systemd/system/.

Found it, disabled the service, error is gone. Thank you guys!
(now only have to re-assemble my sddm greeterrc config file…)
