Troubles after upgrading Manjaro


#41

I have a partition to my system alone. So my data is safe …


#42

a separate drive is better in case the main one your using craps out on ya, but a separate partition is still better than using the same partition your backing up, and definitely better than having no backup at all. timeshift is certainly one of my most valued tools, its saved more than a few times and it’s enabled me to play/tinker with things i otherwise would not do out of fear of having to re-install.


#43

Yes you are right


#44

Another issue is that some times I’ve need to reboot because the wire connection did not success


#45

are you still in the process of fixing the last issue? sloooooow it down… one thing at a time


#46

Ok! I’m just telling. Until when you’ll be online


#47

i spend a decent amount of time on here off and on throughout the day. i still usually check my alerts every so often. hope it works out


#48

Thanks for all man. It is possible to contact you directly in case of future issues. I’m new here in this community but it feels good here.
The work of manjaro developers really impressed me :muscle:


#49

no need, answers to most issues are easily found with a forum/wiki search and for the ones that are a little more difficult to understand you can create a thread asking for help and there are plenty of great people here on the forum who never mind helping someone who at least gives an honest attempt to figure it out on their own. in this case, it seems some earlier installed packages from aur conflicted with the ones manjaro supplies and caused issues during update which then would not let you change to the video-linux drivers, it happens but i see this as a valid reason for making a thread.
besides, if one is looking for me specifically, dropping a @dglt in any post will alert me.
theres nothing wrong with creating threads that are not repeats of others already asked and answered. someone else may run into this issue and this thread could show them how to fix it whereas if i was to help you in a private message, it would only benefit 1 person.


#50

Yeah I understand.
By the way I only installed one package from aur and was youtube-dl when I was using the previous version of aManjaro, that’s before upgrade
which is still preseent installed at /usr/local. I think it is not a trouble at all


#51

Hey @dglt I couldn’t upgrade. A lot of errors such like these:

I did all exactly as you said to me


#52

so pacman failed to finish? or did it throw those errors and then finish?


#53

I could download all packages but couldn’t upgrade because the libraries were also at the system. He found this errors and ended.
@dglt


#54

im looking for similar errors, feel free to do some searching. i dont know off hand why thats happening
can you post any errors from trying to reinstall tzdata
sudo pacman -S tzdata


#55

The same error:
Once I had the same problem And I made pacman but with --override option because pacman fails installing as the library is already installed.

What do you think? I did it @dglt


#56

you got the update to finish using --override ?

btw, i have this thread set to “watching” so you can save yourself the 5 keystrokes on @dglt :sunglasses:
i get alerted of any post to this thread or any post that replies to my own posts


#57

I couldn’t because I need to specify which file overwrite and there are a lot.
I think it is because in the directory /var/lib/pacman/local I have the old and new packages. So pacman maybe trying to decompress both.


#58

before you go clearing all the packages you just spent a while downloading, try this first
sudo pacman -Rdd tzdata
sudo pacman -S tzdata


#59

Yes I could upgrade tzdata, but what about then with others


#60

the only errors you showed me are related to tzdata
