System won't start after Manjaro update

Good afternoon colleagues!

I had a login problem after the latest update, which was released on December 7, 2022.
When I try to log in as a user, it throws me literally for a second on the system boot screen (which refers to GRUB as I understand it), and then back to the authorization window. No errors are thrown with this.
And if you enter an incorrect password, the system will display an authorization error. That is, the problem is clearly not with authorization, I can’t enter the session.
They say it might be a window manager problem, but I’m having a hard time figuring out how to fix it.
Thank you for your attention!

Hi @W_T, and welcome!

In order for us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to provide assistance, more information is necessary. To that end, please see:

Hope you manage!

:bangbang: Tip: :bangbang:

To provide terminal output, copy the text you wish to share, and paste it here, surrounded by three (3) backticks, a.k.a grave accents. Like this:


pasted text


This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

Portaest sed
cursus nisl nisi
hendrerit ac quis
tortor sit leo commodo.

Instead of like this:

Portaest sed elementum cursus nisl nisi hendrerit ac quis sit adipiscing tortor sit leo commodo.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby improving legibility and making it much easier for those trying to be of assistance.

:bangbang: Also, if your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.

Please edit your post accordingly.


Can you log in through TTY?

Does the desktop launches if you execute :point_down: from TTY?


Unfortunately it doesn’t help.

startplasma-x11: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/ unexpected reloc type 0xb8

Don’t use AUR if you don’t know how to maintain it.

Would you have updated from an out-of-sync mirror?

sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && sudo pacman -Syyu

Is that library at the right version?

LANG=C pacman -Qo /usr/lib/

And how will this help me in solving the current problem?

I tried to sync, but it gives a sync error with all databases.

Yes, the version is correct. But at the same time, an error is generated that there is no library bluez-qt-5.100.0-1 and fraemworkintegration-5.100.0-1

what was the exact error when you were rerunning the update again?
post a pic from startx command

Your rmirror is not sync and you’re probably in a partial update state because of that.
Switch mirrors and complete the update.

$ sudo pacman-mirrors -f 5 && sudo pacman -Syyu

there is some xauthority issue, so post output from:
find $HOME/ -name ".Xauthority"

and try reinstall:
sudo pacman -S kconfigwidgets
post any errors from it

did but doesn’t help

were there any errors when you reinstalled it? because looking at the above pic, it looks like you are not connected to internet…

and whats the output from the find xauthority command? it looks strange …
