PBP NetworkManager failing to start after updating packages today

Today I started with everything functional, then later upgraded all packages (full list from pacman log uploaded here), which included networkmanager upgrade 1.22.2-1 -> 1.22.4-1.
Since then (I've restarted after the upgrade, and then did it once more just to be safe) I initially noticed that I don't have the "wifi icon" in bottom right in KDE, and when opening "Connections - System Settings Module" the list in the window is empty (no interfaces, no VPNs).

I can bring up the wifi manually with wpa_supplicant just fine, so I'm guessing this is just a problem of networkmanager alone?

When I check status of NetworkManager service, I can see that it tries to go up five times then gives up, even if brought up manually:

Downgrading networkmanager to version 1.22.2-1 recovers the situation: the service works, and lets me connect to wifi "normally".
Anybody else? Any ideas? (I can paste the core dump somewhere if someone can guide me through obtaining it)

Same thing with my pbp. I just received it, installed manjaro, and after last update Network Manager stopped working.

Give me a sign so i can make a quick sync of the packages.

You can downgrade the installed package to the 1.22.2 one in your cache with:
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/networkmanager-1.22.2*

OK - thanks.
Let's prevent other users from upgrading.

I did. I removed the 1.22.4 package from the repo and re-uploaded the working 1.22.2.

ok - I have sync mirror just now.

Just FYI networkmanager version 1.22.4-1 .1 fixes this.
