Do I need to downgrade systemd?
Not necessarily. If
systemd 243.162-2 works fine for you, you can keep it. If you have issues related to systemd, of course, you may want to downgrade the packages related to systemd.
This is valid until Manjaro Team says otherwise. If the team asks everyone to downgrade the packages for a reason or another, do it.
Pamac: I can't build AUR packages
Before anything else, please verify in /etc/pamac.conf if BuildDirectory is set up correctly. For example:
## AUR build directory: BuildDirectory = /var/tmp
If you have something like
/ instead, you might have been affected by the following bug. A bug in Pamac "corrupted" the value of BuildDirectory, which ultimately leads to a directory that Pamac can't write in (to create a directory) because the user does not have the permission to do so, hence why Pamac failed to build AUR packages.
This bug should be fixed by now in Pamac 9.2.0rc, but users affected by the bug have to change back this parameter to a correct value manually, which can be done either with a text editor by editing /etc/pamac.conf OR graphically within Pamac GTK by going in Preferences > AUR.
