Segmentation fault during update

Hi folks!
My first post here and it is an issue.I'm not new to linux but Arch/Garuda. Today I did an update via pacman -Syu. The update was almost done when I've got

error: segmentation fault
Please submit a full bug report with --debug if appropriate.
zsh: segmentation fault  sudo pacman -Syu

The installed version was garuda-kde-ultimate-linux-tkg-bmq-201205.iso
For some reasons I've reinstalled the same version and did an pacman -Syu again. The first error I've got was about an invalid pgp-key and two corrupted packages. No update was done.
With the next try I've got the segmentation fault.
Long story short I need help with creating a bug report.

Any help will be appreciated

Given you've just reinstalled, I'd try again with a more recent installer image.

If you're still having issues then run a memory test.

Here I have the next problem with this machine. This is the only image where garuda starts. The other images (dragonized, lxqt, blackarch) are booting to a dark screen with three grey squares and thats it.

If you are an experienced user then I would suggest testing out the KDE barebones edition, as I believe it has recently been rebuilt using the linux-lts kernel as the base. This will at least tell you if the recent kernel change is responsible for your issue.

Thank you! I'll try this afternoon when I'm back from work.

Barebone installed! Runs smoothly out of the box! No problems so far. I'm really impressed.

Glad to hear that worked.

Perhaps the devs may decide to build a different kernel on another ISO version in the future. Of course that's extra work and effort every time a new update is released. At a certain point all the extra editions with different builds just becomes a bit too much work.

Glad that helped, enjoy Garuda.

I really do!
