Little penguin ending System Update is now a rectangle

This is absolutely unimportant, but the little penguin that ended the System Update process (after the text "System updated!") now is a little rectangle, so I guess there is some font missing or something like that. I haven't uninstalled anything nor changed the configuration of the terminal, so maybe it's a general issue. I did install the ttf-ms-fonts package some days ago, although I do not think it has anything to do. Be aware also that I use the chaotic-aur package stacer to clean the system, in case it deletes something it should not (but I've been using it for quite some time).

I've rebooted after the last update.

I'm reporting this from my desktop computer, not my laptop.

Cheers.

Maybe stacer deleted the fontconfig, try sudo pacman -S noto-color-emoji-fontconfig

I did as you suggested and the little guy is back. Thank you very much. Stacer has nothing to do with it. I ran Stacer again to clean the system and the little penguin is still there (I rebooted and ran a System Update again to check it). I do not know how I lost that package.

happened to me as well when i ran update command today

I want to dive into something that is very far from my knowledge.... :slight_smile:
I see that noto-color-emoji-fontconfig has noto-fonts-emoji as a dependency, which in the AUR seems to have been updated recently (01-Nov).
Maybe the update of noto-fonts-emoji was incompatible with the installed noto-color-emoji-fontconfig.
Instead, reinstalling noto-color-emoji-fontconfig, from the chaotic AUR that rebuilds automatically, maybe everything is back to normal?

Edit: I take it all back and go back to work, which is better :slight_smile:
Here everything works well after update with those versions.

I just mysteriously lost the package as well after merely a pacman -Syu
