(2020-05-19) systemd 245.5 and old Plymouth
If you have an older Manjaro installation from 2017 or so, you might still have Plymouth installed. If you hadn’t updated it from AUR, it is recommended to remove Plymouth before you attempt to update systemd. If for some reason you updated already and now have issues, login to a TTY and disable Plymouth:
- Ctrl + Alt + F3 and login
- sudo pacman -R plymouth
- you may want to check if the wanted display manager still works and enable its service if needed.
For more details and possible further steps on Plymouth removal see Plymouth - Manjaro Linux In particular you need to remove the “plymouth” hook from /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and rebuild your initramfs.
Search the forum for additional Plymouth troubleshooting. 0.9.4.r269.g23afdeb-2 should fix the issue.
