On my Assus TUF gaming laptop, Wifi stops working after a few minutes.
When I restart network manager (sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager), it either works again, or it does not detect any wifi SSIDs anymore, and the network interfaces become unavailable.
In the past, there also was a period of time that my wifi regularly stopped working, and it has been working good again afterwards, but now the problem re appears, and it is worse than before.

When I reboot in windows, which I normally don’t use, wifi does not work there either, but the windows troubleshooter fixes it, and when I then reboot in Manjaro, wifi works again for a few hours, and then it breaks again.
Not sure, but I am thinking it may be a driver bug that resurfaced after a Manjaro update.
Is there somewhere I can find older drivers to try if that solves the network problem, or any other way to troubleshoot and solve this issue ?
Any ideas on how to fix this ?
Another issue is that the pacman gui app does not update the system anymore.
I was able to do an update using the terminal command sudo pacman -Syyu
but a few AUR packages don’t get updated.
Pacman says "failed to prepare transaction and suggests to edit build files.
Failed to prepare transaction:

I am running Manjaro for almost 4 years now on this laptop, and lately experimented with a number of install/uninstalls, and also installed a Brother printer driver using the Brother install script that required installing dpkg, which is a Debian package manager.
Do you think it is time for a complete re install of Manjaro and to start with a clean system to fix all of these problems ?
