Failed units:

some of my local application can’t access the internet, like Konsole (I tried pinging many ips nothing worked except ( obiviously )) then my minecraft launcher (tlauncher) , FTB app

apps that can access internet - chrome ,modrith ,discord

i tried restarting the laptop,hotspot
i tried usb tethering too still same issue

Did you ever change proxy or DNS settings, or suspect some application (e.g. a VPN) may have done so?

no i did not change any setting i only installed tlauncher last but that worked fine yesterday from moring i did not access internet but when i tried i could not

Your system is in a partial upgrade status and outdated.
You should try to fix this with


If WiFi works inconsistently, try with Ethernet or maybe mobile phone tethering.
Ops, I see now hotspot is not working. Maybe USB tethering.


Sir I am trying it will let you know soon but how garuda-update can access internet

Have you tried pinging using the domain name instead of using the IP address?

shall i delete the mentioned file

garuda-update -- --overwrite /usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/deskreen.png

Sorry, no, i haven’t. But now i did and it works, but still the ip doesn’t work?

what does this mean?

trying this will let you nkow sir,

Your problem is likely with your DNS setup.

The first thing to try is changing your DNS server address.


how shall it be done it is in my moblie or ?

Please post:

cat etc/resolv.conf

Make a backup of /etc/resolv.conf and remove any file write protection (if enabled):

sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf.bak && sudo chattr -i /etc/resolv.conf

Then, run the following command to auto-generate an /etc/resolv.conf file with Google as the DNS server:

echo -e "nameserver\nsearch" | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf

To restore /etc/resolv.conf to its original state issue the following command:

sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf.bak /etc/resolv.conf 

You could also test Cloudflare as the DNS server if you’d prefer:

echo -e "nameserver\nsearch" | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf

I won’t know which server you are currently using until you post the contents of your current etc/resolv.conf file.

Ya, you’ll definitely want to test either/ both of the servers I suggested on my last post.


Yeah I did now I am replying from my phone

It seems the it has some connectivity issues I thought you were typing for so long​:rofl:

Should I restart my laptop?

Sure thing.

Sorry I am back it seems still the same

Have you tried rebooting your router?
If pinging domain names is working but pinging ip addresses is not, maybe you have a routing problem as opposed to a DNS one.


It is mobile hotspot in mobile to the same issue
