Updated after 6 month failed

I updated my garuda after 6 months and now everything crashed. I have to reach out everything through the terminal and my accounts have been singed out of chrome, the shortcuts have been reseted, etc.
How do i fix this? What is the best choice to not loose all my data and fix this?

Can you describe your problem in more detail? Please also follow the post template and post your garuda-inxi.


BTRFS snapshots + hard disk backups. Those are great ways to start.
But that will mainly work next time, once you get back your files. I was specifically answering the above quoted question.


@FGD I have btrfs snapshots. So to log in to the snapshots I have to select the snapshot from the advanced option for garuda and wait for some time for it? I tried that once but it crashed my whole system and was not able to open even the garuda menu

Here's my garuda-inxi

Please don't ignore this part of my question, thank you.


@TNE so i didn't update my garuda for more than 6 months, and yesterday i updated it with

sudo pacman - Syy
sudo pacman - Syu

After that i felt a few bugs but now the shortcuts are reseted, the latte dock is gone - just a blank screen with wallpaper is there as homescreen.
Google account have been erased from chrome.
These are the things which I can find wrong for now but i think there are many more.

What shortcuts are we talking about specifically here?
Honestly, for your Google account I would say just log in again, doesn't seem like a big deal.
In regard to latte-dock, it looks like you will have to reset the configuration as described here:


@TNE the shortcuts i am talking about are system keyboard shortcuts like maximizing minimizing window, getting to next, previous desktop, etc

Garuda is a rolling distribution.

You must update rolling distributions on a regular basis, (weekly or bi-weekly at most).

Waiting 6 moths between updates is not acceptable system maintenance on a rolling distribution.

You are mistaking Garuda for a static distribution.

Switch back to Ubuntu or Mint if you intend to update annually or semi-annually.

You've already been told before, dude:
