systemsettings5 segmentation fault after an upgrade

i just updated my system by doing pamac update and did a reboot. after it finished booting up, i can’t open system settings at all.

here’s what it says with gdb, but i don’t understand it at all

i did checked the similar topic but it didn’t work for me

Just a hunch … but maybe there is a foreign package taking the place of a system one when it should not?

pacman -Qm

there’s no foreign package that’s out of place here - i think

i was able to open the setting by running:

(i got that from here)

AFAIK running pkexec without arguments will run it as root so i don’t really want to continue doing that since I wouldn’t know if running it as root would break something
