#163

Did you update from a tty, or did you use a terminal from within the graphical environment.

That looks like an error in your fstab preventing your boot.


#164

From the TTY this time. And halfway the screen went black and after 5m it was doing nothing and issued a reboot.

I am now doing the rest of the updates since it didn’t complete last time it seems.


#165

Check your /etc/fstab for a mistake in the load line of the device listed in the error message.


#166

I’m a bit disappointed the TTY update thing keeps coming back again and again. Is this the price we need to pay for adopting systemd? Is this something that is being worked on to prevent, or is the direction same as fedora has and just surrender to offline updates by design?


#167

Start your update before you go to bed. Is that really such a hardship.


#168

Well, my lightdm works now. But like my laptop I can’t login now. Get kicked back straight to login again.

Just checked with pamac and here aswell a error with cinnamon-settings-daemon. Same as my laptop.


#169

Perhaps you should open a support thread. Did you update your mirrors?


#170

Excuse me good sir, and the rest of people for the OT, but would you be so kind as to inform me of the name of that beautiful prompt theme?


#171

screenfetch


#172

He mean this grafik


#173

@Sojiro84 Yeah, maybe it’s time to open a new thread for this problem. I have the exact same problem.


#174

The catch with using an older kernel in that case is as follows:

Linux 4.19.6-1 [LTS] -> that’s the one that does not let my laptop go into suspend

Linux 4.19.4-1 [LTS] -> not in cache and not offered by Manjaro Kernel Manager anymore -> that was the one with which suspend was working properly

Linux 4.18.20-1 [EOL] -> suspend working, but EOL.

Linux 4.14.85-1 [LTS] -> suspend also not working properly, but different problem with laptop going into suspend and then waking up again shortly after (can be fixed by echo XHC > /proc/acpi/wakeup but then I lose wakeup capability by mouse/keyboard event).


#175

I made a thread for it here: Error logging in after latest update "cinnamon-settings-daemon" corrupt


#176

By the way, @Sojiro84, to answer your earlier question about using --overwrite, the full command for you and me is sudo pacman -S --overwrite cinnamon-settings-daemon. You can try it if you like, but all I got was error: no targets specified (use -h for help) after using it.


#177

Just use 4.18 for a little while, it’s only been EOL for a week or something like that. Using it for a short while is not a big concern. You definitely don’t want to remain on it for too long for security reasons.

You could also switch to the testing branch and test out 4.20.


#178

Been having a similar issue ever since I updated to gtk3, except that I don’t get any scaling issues on my 4k screen and it doesn’t happen on every boot. About 50% of the time the theme actually loads properly. Logging out and then logging in again fixes the issue for me.

Anyway, the update from TTY worked without issues for me (xfce with 4.19 kernel). Thanks to the Manjaro team!


#180

Update on 12 Machines and 1 VB without Problems.

DK3


#181

hi philm
Good update on i7-7700 desktop Plasma & XFCE and MacBookPro8.1. Did both with init1, TTY(ctrl/alt/f2 in my case)-- instead of a terminal emulator in the GUI. Worked on both systems this way without any problems.
Thanks & regards

#183

Manjaro XFCE here; upgrade ran well no real issues to report.

It should be noticed that I’ve never dropped to a text-based shell to do these upgrades, I always do them from a terminal inside XFCE.

The whisker menu crashed during the upgrade, but it restarted. Which is to be expected IMO with the number of XFCE updates.
