tried following the above-mentioned guide. however, without luck.
sudo pacman-mirrors -f3
sudo pacman -Syyu
result: no new packages were found. nothing was updated.

it is stated that the xorg.conf has got problems. however, i have for sure not altered anything in that file so unsure why that should suddenly be wrong. or, is this xorg.conf problem simply only due to me being on manjaroi3?
by the way, tried running
i3, which returned
i3: cannot open display. as well as i tried
xinit /bin/i3which returned
(EE) no screens found(EE).
i see that more than i have had the same problem. the solution for @chrisf was to do a fresh install. i hope that is not the only way of solving this.
is it common having to do fresh installs of manjaro fixing boot issues?
