Problem after update

Hi, I updated some hours ago, now there is an error: "Failed to star simple Desktop Display".

Sometimes it overrides the issue, but it stopps at "Started TLP system startup/shutdown"

Can anyone help?

Try a new update from TTY, this way:
sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && sudo pacman -Syyu
reboot then try
sudo systemctl stop sddm
sudo systemctl start sddm
if you get the same error. Also, can you reach the desktop from TTY by using startx command, or startkde ?

Thanks for your help!

How do I enter a terminal?

Moved from #technical-issues-and-assistance to #newbies as it seems requires more assistance:

Ctrl+Alt+F3 to go to TTY3

Also, always make sure you read announcements for updates, maybe there are things mentioned there that might help identify/fix some known issues

"apcman-mirrors" it did not know, but " pacman -Syyu" solved the problem.

@bogdancovaciu please correct your typo and I will mark your post as the solution.
