Update borked something

Please excuse my ignorance I’ve only been using this OS for about a month.

A few hours ago I went ahead and updated a whole bunch of stuff from the package manager, I assume this had something to do with the update Manjaro put out today. Regardless, I can’t get the os to boot instead I get stuck at a screen along the lines of:
/Dev/sda1: clean, 794131/7331840 files, 22132109/29304312

This has happened to me once before when I installed new Nvidia drivers (after which I just reinstalled the OS) so I suspect that is the case but I have no idea where to start.

I can access some sort of command line by hitting ctrl+alt+f2 but im not sure if that would enable me to solve my problems.

Thank you in advance

Probably your card cant handle 495 … use mhwd to remove it and reinstall 470.


mhwd -l -d
sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia 
sudo mhwd -f -i pci video-nvidia-470xx
systemctl reboot

Ah ha she works! I couldn’t reinstall from the command line but the uninstall switched everything over to the open source drivers and I slapped the 470xx drivers firmly into place and everything is hunky dory. Thank you.

Thanks, you saved me, did this from a live-boot(had to learn ‘’ Chroot’’ first) and it work.
I am now in the new LTS kernel and the 470 NVIDIA (that i removed and installed via live-boot).

On a side note, always read the update announcements, they list the know issues and solution, you could have saved you the trouble by reading it, and doing it after the update:
