Since pacman6 released, some users had an issue on add/remove software. Software opens and shutdowns itself. I found a solution for this problem. This is a short-term solution because of the complex structure of system.
Step 1. Download the neeeded file from http://dar.vin/libal
Step 2. Open terminal from where the file exists.
Step 3. Transfer file to /usr/lib folder with root permission (sudo cp file name /usr/lib) and reboot your system.
Step 4. Update your system from terminal (with sudo pacman -Syyu) and reboot again.
If you have some questions about problem, my answers may be late. I'm busy with my university lessons.
I tried this solution. It failed and I was able to timeshift to an earlier point, but I dont have a timeshift far enough back to restore a version before pacman 6 update.
(I guess this was a issue for a few days before I noticed)
Is this a temporary issue that I can wait for a official solution soon or do I need to take more drastic steps to fix this issue?
E: ts: Failed to get partition list.
First run mode (config file not found)
Selected default snapshot type: BTRFS
E: System disk not found!
Unable to run timeshift-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)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
So its not only for me, but for all other users, the software program fails to show up. In that case, i will just wait till it get fixed. i dont want to break my system (Pacman 6 - manual intervention). Hope this issue will be solved automatically through regular updates.
The "pacman 6 - manual intervention" has to be addressed anyway.
The config merge must be done, and must be done properly.
Otherwise there is no way that you'll be able to update your system and have "add/remove software" working (whenever this will be updated) or to install equivalent tools
