No issue, everything went smoothly
Yes there was an issue. I was able to resolve it myself.(Please post your solution)
Yes i am currently experiencing an issue due to the update. (Please post about it)
You get [PKGNAME] warning: directory permissions differ on [Directory name]
Filesystem: NNN package MMM
Please click the ► at the beginning of this line to view this solution
sudo chmod MMM DirectoryName
Where obviously MMM is the second number you see (the correct one)
Your package expects the security permissions to be MMM but your system is set to NNN. This is just a warning (today) but to ensure you remain up-to-date with the latest and greatest security rules it’s advised to execute the above command.
Systemd error message: .slice: Failed to migrate controller cgroups
If you have a similar error message like this:
systemd: -.slice: Failed to migrate controller cgroups from /firstname.lastname@example.org, ignoring: Permission denied
… you may need to add this Grub parameter to your /etc/default/grub file in line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT: systemd.unified_cgroup_hierarchy=true. To update your grub menu, call: sudo update-grub. For more information on that issue, see also Arch Forum.
Python 3.9 Requires Rebuilds
Instructions for quickly and easily rebuilding affected AUR packages:
# Install yay
sudo pacman -S --needed --noconfirm yay
# Rebuild AUR python packages
yay -S --noconfirm $(pacman -Qqo "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages")
The libtraceevent package prior to version 5.9-1 was missing a soname link. This has been fixed in 5.9-1, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked files created by ldconfig. If you get any of these errors
libtraceevent: /usr/lib/libtraceevent.so.1 exists in filesystem
PAM and PAMBASE got updated, which might prevent you from login
Due to updates from pambase and pam you might take care about any .pacnew files in /etc/pam.d as for example pam_tally, pam_tally2 and pam_cracklib got deprecated. Read in the ArchWiki about managing those files.
For recovery, it is enough to boot with kernel option “systemd.unit=rescue.target”, then proceed into /etc/pam.d and merge “system-auth” and “system-auth.pacnew”
System takes a long time to boot
If you’ve got errors like Failed to start Network Manager Wait Online. you can try removing systemd from passwd and group in /etc/nsswitch.conf as described here Update: If you can see the line dbus-daemon: [system] Connection has not authenticated soon enough, closing it (auth_timeout=30000ms, elapsed: 45146ms)
in in your dbus log ( journalctl -b -u dbus ), the new/better workaround is to switch cups from service to socket as described here: systemctl disable cups.service systemctl enable cups.socket
I think I’ve some font problems
With the update of fontconfig some major rules how fonts get applied changed. Make sure that your system has ttf-dejavu installed. A more in depth explanation can be found here.
Gnome-shell-extension-pop-shell is currently incompatible with wayland
… and causes the system to freeze when the first window is tiled and can render it unbootable. Solution is a hard reset and disabling either pop shell or wayland. If the system becomes unbootable, use a live USB to edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf to disable wayland and reboot.
At first, python (which is no surprise as it appears to be prone to such issues):
python-pip: /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/pip/_internal/resolution/resolvelib/__pycache__/reporter.cpython-39.pyc exists in the file system
python-pip: /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/pip/_internal/resolution/resolvelib/reporter.py exists in the file system
Second (but I guess this will remain as long as we have the Nvidia driver 390 available this way):
After the update, lutris is not starting. Terminal output:

Yes, the package is broken. Arch just did a version bump without looking at upstream changes. python-lxml is a new dependency among other things. I would do an overlay, but there are other upstream issues that need to be dealt with before there’s reallly a stable package to manage.
In the meantime, I suggest installing lutris-git from the AUR. I’m the maintainer, so you’re in good hands.
Indeed, as it looks like that version by xybu is not maintained since ages, I have switched to the version provided by abraunegg as well.
There are more and more problems trying to install xybu’s version, fortunately I came across abraunegg’s posting there.
Looks like xybu has performed an excellent job on search engine optimization, though.
Although the last update is already more than 2 years ago, it still appears on top of the search results when looking for an Onedrive client for Linux on Google, while abraunegg’s version is never found there.
From version 5.0.0 onward PulseEffects needs PipeWire. Pulseaudio users need to instal one of the 4.x releases or building a package directly from our legacy Pulseaudio branch GitHub - wwmm/pulseeffects at pulseaudio-legacy. Arch Linux users can also use the PKGBUILD on the same branch. This branch will receive updates for critical bugs as time goes by. So if PipeWire is not for you yet it is fine to use the legacy branch.
So I’ve decided to use the legacy branch for now. It’s available from AUR and can be installed via pamac-manager, etc. pulseeffects-legacy-git 4.8.4r10.gc63827fc-1 & gst-plugins-pulseeffects-legacy-git 4.8.4r10.gc63827fc-1
Since the latest updates i’m having temperature problems. It seems my cpu now run at maximum frequency all the time, like if it’s in a high performance governor. I have manjaro testing branch running in 2 systems (intel desktop i7 9700k and a intel laptop i7-1065G7) and both are having the same issue.
