VPN stopped working after these updates - the saved OpenVPN configs in
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ have been altered, and no longer work (no password or certificates stored). Any attempt to change these settings via the nm-settings GUI fails, as changes aren’t preserved. Giving nm-settings admin rights makes no difference.
I always do a backup using Timeshift before any updates/system changes, so I just copied the pre-update configs back to
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ - this works, but any attempt to change these, or add new connections via nm-settings still fails.
I doubt that I’ll need to add a new VPN connection, so not a problem for me (I’d set it up on another non-Arch install and copy over if necessary), but others will need a fix.
