Not booting/ stuck at splashscreen

Hello, after updating (sudo pacman -Syu) my UI was acting weird so i restarted my laptop.
After restarting i get

error: file/boot/vmlinuz-5.15-x86_64’ not found
error: you need to load the karnel first

so i booted on live usb and used this commands in terminal:

sudo manjaro-chroot -a
sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/db.lck
mhwd-kernel -i linux510

Now my labtop starts booting but it is stuck at splash screen.

Any ideas what I can do? Thanks in advance.

rerun the update again; in the stuck screen enter TTY - press ctrl+alt+f2 - or f1-f6 keys, enter your username/password and rerun update

when i run (sudo pacman -Syu) i get

error: could not open file /var/lib/pacman/local/python-3.10.6-1/desc: no such file or directory
looking for conflicting packages...
warning: could not fully load metadata for package python-3.10.6-1
error: failed to prepare transaction (invalid or corrupted package)

lets hope this is the only issue you have:
sudo touch /var/lib/pacman/local/python-3.10.6-1/desc
reinstall it:
sudo pacman -S python --overwrite '*'
we use the overwrite just in case
it will probably give you the same issue again, but this time with files instead of desc, so do the same sudo touch with files and then reinstall again python

ok, I reinstalled python and reboted… still stuck at splash screen.

do I try using sudo pacman -Syu

if you didnt run the update again after you reinstalled python, so yes run it now

still stuck at splash screen

were there no errors during the update?
are you using nvidia?

My bad.
Im using intel

we need to use overwrite:
sudo pacman -Syu --overwrite '*'

thanks for help.
Laptop booted normaly now.
