Hi community,

Most noticed change made with this update is our new Mesa-Stack. With it we enhanced our Optimus-Support. You might need to adopt to the given changes and check for pacsave files during this update. If you face issues due file conflicts or want to read up on the change made, you may find more information about it here.

Marcus offers now a complete switch from Consolekit to Elogind for our Openrc-editions. More information can be found in the dedicated thread.

For our KDE friends we ship Plasma 5.9.4. With release 0.8.6 of our new CLI net-installer Manjaro-Architect is now available and has been stabilized after some quite thorough testing lately. More details on this project here.

Latest pacman-mirrors update fixes some bugs with the new ranking functionality. More information on the latest development with this to be found here and here

Deepin is currently experiencing some heavy updating - not without issues I’m afraid, but we are doing our best to keep everything as smooth as possible there. We expect things to calm down again in the near future with deepin development and am planning on releasing another Manjaro-Deepin edition then …

As usual we also updated most of our kernels to the latest point-releases, pushed out some new versions of Pamac, Calamares and our Manjaro-Tools.

If you have however some issues you can’t fix on your own, please post them in detail, so we may help you out. Also it is possible to start fresh with Manjaro v17.0.1 release, which includes this update.

kind regards,
Philip Müller and the Development Team

Troubleshoot

If you have issues with this update you may try one of these guides:

To manually update to the new Mesa-LibGLVND stack you can do following steps

  • open a terminal and issue sudo pacman -S mhwd mesa libglvnd --force
  • if you have a 64bit system use this instead: sudo pacman -S mhwd mesa libglvnd lib32-mesa lib32-libglvnd --force
  • continue with the normal update with sudo pacman -Syu

Here is a quick tutorial on how to update from a TTY-Console:

  • open a TTY with CTRL+ALT+F3
  • login with your user
  • issue a normal update with sudo pacman -Syu
  • if you have an issue with file conflicts, try to fix it by installing manjaro-system with sudo pacman -Sy manjaro-system
  • then try to update once more with sudo pacman -Syu

Else we have some tips and tricks already posted in this thread or here.

Stuck at emergency shell
#3

The last few days I read these updates pages, but I don’t get a warning I have updates.
I synchronized the database and still no updates available. What do I need to do to get them?
I do use KDE so a Plasma update should be presented, right. I don’t use Firefox but I have it installed so also there I should get the update. Or am I totally wrong?


#4

I just pushed this update, so mirrors will take a while to accept it. You can use the mirror Netzspielplatz or stdout.net which sync every 5 minutes with our server. However 8 other mirrors already have synced aswell.


#5

@DeMus

Check that your mirror is synched at repo.manjaro.org first.

philm beat me to it, lol :grinning:


#6

Maybe it is needed to refresh repo.manjaro.org to display the actual status, as we still have a bug with it.


#7

It’s not only today, I saw updates mentioned here which I also didn’t get during the last few days.


#8

Which mirror do you use?


#9

Update completed without any issue, thank you lots!

No problem here, thanks for the work :slight_smile:


#12

…started updating a few minutes after announcement. With pacman-mirrors -c all -m random
and
pacman-mirrors -f 10
I fetched it. Smooth update on Lenovo X121e, core i3.
30 minutes later my Acer AO521 amd netbook already fetched the update with the notifier. I was brave and did the update with pamac (haven`t done this for months). Tick the button, apply, password, done, reboot.

Thank you manjaro-team, have a nice sunday


#13

Just did another sync and now suddenly I have 121 updates waiting to be installed.
Will install them after making a backup, just in case.


#14

I have isuue and the topic is here


#15

Thanks for smooth update again … I have only 3 things to discuss:

  • automatic update Firefox bookmarks … in all my FF instances was added links to Manjaro Home/Wiki/Forum and Mozilla RSS

  • in my 4.4 kernel mkinitcpio persists ERROR: module not found: crc32 directly after encrypt hook

  • and one idea for new pacman-mirrors - add parameter to define maximal time from last sync in actual branch (ie. use only mirrors synced max. x hours ago). This will help when new update is available and all mirrors aren’t synced yet.


#16

Did the backup, the update and the reboot and I can restart the system and open Chrome. Don’t know yet about other programs, but I think it will be okay. Thanks Phil and others involved.


#17

Everything went flawless. Like always, thanks !


#18

Hi,

manjaro removed my current nvidia driver and wanted to replace it with the video-nvidia-340xx one. Once the update was done, it tried to boot using the video-nouveau, which failed to boot. After booting from a USB stick and chrooting into the installed OS, I was able to clean up the mess and start with my working driver again.

Besides this issue there was no problem with the update and everything is running great now.

Regards,
