Pacman update failing after Timeshift rollback

Hello all,

My system was becoming unstable and freezing up so I used Timeshift to roll things back. when I try to update using sudu pacman -Syu it will not complete. I’m getting errors with LibCanberra. Please see terminal results below.

[andyd@andy-inspironn7010 ~]$ sudo pacman -Syu

Any idea how to solve this?

Welcome to the forum! Did you know it also has a search function? :stuck_out_tongue:


That post by @philm dates back to the 14th of June 2021. Looks like it must have been quite a while since you made your last backup, hmm? :stuck_out_tongue:

My search had me down the wrong rabbit holes but thank you sir for steering me in the right direction. It looks like that did the trick.

You are awesome!
Thanks again

Always be careful with rabbit holes. They’re like black holes; a lot of stuff goes in, but nothing sensible comes out. :stuck_out_tongue:

And for future reference… :arrow_down:
