Please don’t post to say everything was great on my side or yes, I have the same error but leave the space for people having issues, or even better: for people having solutions!

New issues:

Pamac can't handle file conflicts checking

As of now libpamac v11.1.2 has still the issue checking for file conflicts properly. Keep an eye on this ticket and use pacman for now as needed. As soon as a fix is available it will be pushed to all branches: Hangs on file conflicts checking (#1138) · Issues · Applications / pamac · GitLab

Solution: update to libpamac 11.1.3 sudo pacman -Sy libpamac

Shotcut Scrolling doesn't work any more

You now need to hold down the (aka “the Windows key”) to make the mouse wheel scroll the timeline forwards & backwards.

Fullscreen loses focus

Symptoms:
Full-screen apps like YouTube and games:

  • Load fine but after briefly showing the application you’re dumped back into your Desktop Environment (DE) whilst the application was still running fine in the background.
  • Clicking on the running application briefly brings you back to it but you’re dumped again to the DE after a second or 2.

Solution:
disable the Desktop Icons (DING) extensions

Older Issues:

With 21.1.4 and initial 21.1.5 release it was not possible to install on non-BTRFS filesystems

Seems grub-btrfs preinstalled in version 4.10.1 introduced a regression to error out when no BTRFS filesystem was found on your system. This was part of 21.1.4 ISO and our initial 21.1.5 release. Please re-download 21.1.5, which is now fixed.

Steam shows black screen

:warning: Opting in or out for Steam beta changes nothing.

Workaround:

  • Open a terminal

  • Execute:

    LD_PRELOAD=/lib/libharfbuzz.so steam
    
Buzzing sound while using headphones.

Workaround:

  • Execute:

    sudo nano --backup /etc/tlp.conf
    
  • set SOUND_POWER_SAVE_ON_AC=0

  • Only if you have to, set SOUND_POWER_SAVE_ON_BAT=0 as well

No idea how much it affects battery life, though.

Vertex-Maia-Icons are messed up.

Workaround:

  • Vertex-Maia-Icons will be dropped from the repository soon:
  • Choose some new icon theme.
Unable to login in remotely using ssh using rsa keys

After this upgrade authentication might not work and might find the following error in the ssh log:

userauth_pubkey: key type ssh-rsa not in PubkeyAcceptedAlgorithms [preauth]

Good solution:

  • generate new keys using a more secure algorithm like ED25519

Lazy solution (acceptable for rsa keys with a length >= 3000bits):

  1. Execute:

    sudo nano --backup /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    
  2. copy-paste the following into the above file:

    PubkeyAcceptedAlgorithms=+ssh-rsa
    
  3. To save, press Ctrl+X Enter Y

It works now, but you’re still using SHA1 which has been showing weaknesses for years now (although it’s not actually cracked, it’s not recommended any more and why ssh disabled it)

QTile minimizes windows

floating_layout rules in a dict was deprecated a while ago

Brave segfaults / crashes

Solution:

  • Clear cache / Data
  • Re-install Brave afterwards
You might have issues to install this update by missing Maintainers keys

A possible solution might be:

sudo rm -r /etc/pacman.d/gnupg
sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate manjaro
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux
sudo pacman -Syvv manjaro-keyring  # just to test for key-problems, as this would fail

However, we recommend to remove the signatures of the failed packages in /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ and get the replaced ones from the Build-Server:

sudo rm -v /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*.sig
sudo pacman -Syvv
nVidia 4xx PRIME on kernel >= 5.5 has no audio

If you are using an nVidia card with the proprietary prime driver and you get no audio through the HDMI port or the USB devices of the card don’t work it’s because they have been disable due to a power management bug in the kernel. This bug has been fixed in recent updates, so if you are running a kernel with version >= 5.5 and the 4xx version nVidia driver you can fix those problems by editing the file /etc/udev/rules.d/90-mhwd-prime-powermanagement.rules and commenting the following lines in this way.

  • To go from this:

    # Remove NVIDIA USB xHCI Host Controller devices, if present
    ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x10de", ATTR{class}=="0x0c0330", ATTR{remove}="1"
    
    # Remove NVIDIA USB Type-C UCSI devices, if present

    # Remove NVIDIA Audio devices, if present

    #ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x10de", ATTR{class}=="0x040300", ATTR{remove}="1"
    
  • execute this:

    sudo sed -Ei '/"0x040300"/s/^/#/' /etc/udev/rules.d/90-mhwd-prime-powermanagement.rules

Freetype2 update may break applications
You might be blocked updating when using pacman due to some libcanberra packages.

Simply remove those packages: sudo pacman -Rdd lib32-libcanberra-pulse lib32-libcanberra-gstreamer libcanberra-pulse libcanberra-gstreamer. We recommend to use pamac anyway, which does this automatically: pamac update

vboxdrv error messages of systemd from log `journactl -b -p 3`

I got the error messages of systemd from log journactl -b -p 3 after this update:

Hi!!
I’ve done the update in one of my PC, and I’ve realized that the Manjaro Settings app isn’t any more integrated in the KDE System Preferences. Is this intended?

The Manjaro Settings Manager has disappeared from System Preferences.
The trouble appeared before and can be fixed by reinstalling the manjaro-settings-manager last time.
Now reinstalling does not solve it.

Update.
Do’h! I guessed it.
Pamac is now configured to use world mirrors, and manjaro-settings-manager was installed from the local (Russian) repository.
Anyway, I even like it better that way.
