Update-grub error message

When I run “update-grub” on EXT4 manjaro, I get these results:

When I boot up Manjaro it doesn’t show the GRUB menu instead it boots into the default kernel…

Hello and Welcome,

Just an idea… Open Settings go to Session and Startup → click on Application autostart
Unthick Snapshot detect reboot and try again.


I think the error is not important. I suppose you installed grub-btrfs package. Uninstall it and try again.

By default grub is not shown if you have only one operating system. You can show it pressing Escape key during boot (around the time grub should be shown. It’s just hidden).
You can also change the GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE parameter in /etc/default/grub


After that you have to execute sudo update-grub
