My system said I needed an update which was like 500MBs in size. I don’t know what happened I switched the kernel from Linux 4.19.175-1 to Linux 5.4.97-1 my bluetooth stopped working. To fix this I switched back to linux419 and still bluetooth was not fixed. Me an intellectual went and did this from an old arch linux forum
# point mirrorlist to the archive specifying date to rollback to e.g. to return to 5th April:
echo 'Server=https://archive.archlinux.org/repos/2021/02/17/$repo/os/$arch' > /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist #(I InvincibleKnigght changed the date here)
# do a full system upgrade (double 'y' refreshes your package database, double 'u' allows pacman to downgrade packages)
after which pacman has been facing issues like:(Out put when I run sudo pacman -Syu:) paste[dot]ubuntu[dot]com/p/gjYc5T3h63/
Please help me I am scared as hell. Thank you!
Well for one… don’t just apply random things to your computer without looking into it.
That is obviously Arch Linux, and not Manjaro. Manjaro =/= Arch Linux. You have updated all your packages with the newer packages from Arch Linux now.
You can go into /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and delete that line.
sudo pacman-mirrors -f 5 #this will update and rank the mirrorlist by speed, up to 5 mirrors
sudo pacman -Syyuu #this will sync, refresh mirrors, downgrade packages to repo version, and update
I cannot promise that your computer will not run into problems after downgrading everything.
This is similar to going to Manjaro Unstable (Arch Stable), then switching back to Manjaro Stable, and trying to revert all your packages to the versions in Stable repo. Some packages don’t play well with the downgrade from my experience, but you might be lucky.
