Garuda linux won't boot with an error for intel

Recently I have been having error whenever I started my laptop with Garuda. The exact error is

error: file  'boot/intel-ucode.img^/boot/initramfs-5.12-x86_64.img' not found.
press any key to continue...

Nothing happens when I press the key and later it just boots me to the grub. I used to use the snapshots from the earlier settings but I don't know why but the snapshots are cleared and it won't any system of mine. This problem started when I stopped an update in middle of downloading/updating and right now i am just booting from the disk image on my pen drive.

Can you chroot from your live USB to your installed system and update?

How do I do that?
I am not that well versed in the that side.

When you're on the live USB, you can either use the chroot tool on the welcome page or follow this tutorial

What should I do next, should I try updating the system?

It is having error with mirrors I think when I update.

It looks like you don't have intenet connectivity at all in the chrooted system.
By-the-way, you should copy terminal content in the forum post instead of pictures.


So what should I do now. My bad I'll do that now

It worked now. Because I wasn't connected to internet when I opened chroot.

You mean "the connectivity", i.e. the update completed successfully, or it also removed the issue?

Upgrade failed becuase of invalid or corrupted package. should I delete the cache and do it again?

Yes, that's a good thing to try, considering also the fact that you had to stop the update in the middle before.

After you get into your system, please try:

sudo pacman -S intel-ucode

That should install the package you get the screamin' error about. Updating, as otherwise instructed, may do so also. Please be sure to re-boot.


Now it saying System disk not found. failed to run transaction hooks. sorry I couldn't copy the error(Chroot is not letting me right click for some reason).

Also said please close timeshift and try again. so I am trying that but I don't know how to close timeshift from terminal.

SKIP_AUTOSNAP= pacman -Syu intel-ucode linux-zen


Didn't work. It still ran pre-transaction hooks and gave the same error.

The exact error is

:: Running pre-transaction hooks...
E: system dist not found!
Unable to run timeshit-autosnap! please close timeshift and try again. script will now exit.. 
error: command failed to execute correctly
error: failed to commit transaction (failed to run transaction hooks)

Maybe it's just a typo:
SKIP_AUTOSNAP=1 pacman -Syu intel-ucode linux-zen
