Plymouth (plymouth-24.004.60-10) warning

WARNING: The ‘plymouth-encrypt’ and ‘sd-plymouth’ hooks are depreciated. You should replace them with ‘encrypt’ and ‘plymouth’ hooks in your ‘mkinitcpio.conf’. The ‘lxdm-plymouth.service’, ‘lightdm-plymouth.service’ and ‘sddm-plymouth.service’ systemd service files are no longer recommended. You should enable ‘lxdm.service’, ‘lightdm.service’ or ‘sddm.service’ instead.

Is it normal ?

Yes, this was on the desktop a couple of months ago. It is a general warning for everyone, you may not have any of these but checking will not hurt. Otherwise at some point you will not be able to boot anymore.

Yes. If you are using the mentioned hooks you need to update your mkinitcpio.conf.

pacman -Qo /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
/etc/mkinitcpio.conf is owned by mkinitcpio 39.2-2

I have never updated this file manuallly.
And I cannot see any line in mkinitcpio.conf that are faulty.
